Join us for an exclusive sneak peek at Phase 1 of the Long Creek Greenway! On Saturday, Nov. 19, we'll explore the recently completed section of this north Charlotte trail as part of our Growing our Greenways series with Partners for Parks, Carolina Thread Trail, and Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation.
The new section stretches from Interstate 77 to Treyburn Drive. Phase 2 is expected to be completed in 2023, and Phase 3 is slated to start construction late this year. When finished, the greenway will span roughly 4.5 miles and run from I-77 to Oakdale Road.
In addition to the chance to be among the first to explore Long Creek Greenway, you’ll hear updates about the project from Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation staff and learn why we and our partners are advocating for a fast and equitable expansion of Mecklenburg County's greenway network. TreesCharlotte will also join us with some need-to-know information about the importance of urban trees!
UPDATE: Because this is a fairly short segment (approx. 1 mile each way) and there's a lot to look at and talk about, we plan to keep the group together as a walking tour. There will not be a guided bike ride. But you're certainly welcome to bring your bike to explore on your own before or after the event!
