Description: A space for quiet reflection or a social hot spot, the greenway will be built with the diversity that has Charlotte/Mecklenburg in mind. The walker, jogger, tourist, nature lover, bench sitter or cyclist will delight in this path that connects us all. Urban Little Sugar Creek also includes a major stream restoration project to enhance water quality.
Terrain: All of our walk will be on pavement and concrete, also crossing some neighborhood streets.
Pets are permissible, though they must be leashed at all times. There are several locations which have garbage cans, as well as doggie bags for picking up after your pet.
There are public restroom facilities along this greenway at 3 mile mark.
Each hiker is responsible for their own snacks and water if needed.
We will be parking on the side or behind Michael's Arts and Crafts Store in the Park Rd. Shopping Center.
We'll meet at the side or rear parking lot of Michael's and walk 100 yards over to the greenway trail head. Then we'll walk north on the greenway, passing through a neighborhood and then Freedom Park. Continuing on the greenway and stopping at the new fountain just short of Midtown Park before returning the way we came.
Our walk will start promptly at 9:35 AM. Carpool where possible.
