You will need Adobe Acrobat to view.


What this greenway lacks in length, it more than makes up for in location. The greenway trail provides an important pedestrian linkage between the Merry Oaks and Plaza-Midwood neighborhoods.  Nearby amenities include Veterans Neighborhood Park, Merry Oaks Park, Merry Oaks Recreation Center, Merry Oaks International Academy and the Charlotte Country Club.  Briar Creek Greenway will eventually stretch over 6 miles from Little Sugar Creek Greenway at Tyvola Road to Methodist Home Park at Eastway Drive.


Nature Facts:

A pedestrian bridge spans the creek and offers greenway visitors a chance to stop and see turtles burrow in the creek's bottom, count fish as they swim downstream, and watch as a Great Blue Heron stalks its prey.
