Greenwood Village is the fourteenth track in the game Diddy Kong Racing and its remake, Diddy Kong Racing DS. It is the second track of the fourth world, Dragon Forest. The default vehicle for this track is the Car. The player needs a total of 17 Golden Balloons to enter this course.

Course Layout[]

Players begin on a road in the titular village, after a left turn players come into the village square where they have two options, go straight through to the tunnel section or drop down the well to take a shortcut that will pop you out at the end of the tunnel section before the swamp area. After making their way through the swamp racers will come out of a log tunnel where they again have two choices to proceed, either follow the main track and pass through the second log the conventional way, or veer sharply to the left when exiting the first log to get to the secret entrance of the second log. After exiting the second log players will come back onto the village road near the starting line thus starting the track over.
