  • Growing Our Greenways: Polk to Park Crossing

    Join us for a casual walk or bike ride (your choice!) as we explore one of Mecklenburg County’s newest greenways! This free event is co-hosted by Sustain Charlotte, Partners for Parks, and the Carolina Thread Trail. You’ll have an opportunity to speak with staff and volunteers from these organizations as we discuss the importance of growing our network of greenways. We’ll begin with a short discussion outdoors, and will then continue with a guided walk and bike ride. 

    This is a family-friendly event that is suitable for people of all ages and abilities. 

    NEW DATE: Saturday, January 29, 2022

    2:00 - 3:30 p.m.

    Starting & ending location: President James K. Polk Historic Site, 12031 Lancaster Hwy, Pineville, NC 28134. Look for the Sustain Charlotte tent when you arrive! 

    All participants will be required to sign a waiver upon arrival. We will follow CDC and local health guidance including social distancing, and we ask that you not attend if you are experiencing any covid symptoms or would otherwise put other attendees at risk. 

    Route: When you register, please indicate if you plan to walk or bike. The route is approximately 1.8 miles each way, for a total of 3.6 miles. We will stop multiple times along the route to talk about the greenway. You are welcome to walk or bike less than this distance, or to add additional miles at the end of our time together. 

    Continue the discussion with us after the main event at Waldhorn Restaurant (12101 Lancaster Hwy, Pineville). There is no outdoor seating available, but the bar area will be open. This is not an “official” part of the event and we ask each participant to consider their own level of comfort with gathering indoors. 

    Rain date: In case of inclement weather, the event will be postponed and registered attendees will receive an email notifying you of the change.
