Waymark Code: WM5B18
This walking trail was opened May 18th, 2002 and has 4 trail heads.
The Greenway project did not cost one penny of local tax money to construct. An NCDOT grant from a federal bike path fund and numerous large and small private donations did the job. Landowners donated easements allowing the Greenway to cross their land.
The Greenway's master plan calls for a riverside trail all the way to River's Edge Park and the new YMCA.
A 156-foot bridge crosses the Reddies River near the Wilkesboro Boulevard bridge over the Yadkin.
