Tucked away beside
RiverGate shopping center, this .69 mile of
greenway is small but significant. This greenway is the first greenway
constructed in southwest Mecklenburg County. When you happen upon this
trail, it offers a restful excursion through a streamside forest. In the
future, Walker Branch Greenway will be connected to extensive trails leading
into South Carolina and north on Steele Creek to Olympic High School.
Careful observers can find White-tailed deer, Raccoon, and Opossum tracks along the creek and should watch for migrating songbirds in the large Green Ash, Sycamore, and Southern Hackberry trees during spring and fall. During the summer, a diversity of butterflies and dragonflies frequent the moist floodplain pools and small tributaries.
