Greenways

The Mecklenburg County Greenway System is quickly becoming one of the finest in the nation.   Greenways are linear parks that connect people and places.  Greenways are vegetated   natural buffers that promote water quality, help reduce the impacts of flooding, and provide wildlife habitat.   Greenway trails provide recreation, transportation, fitness, and economic benefits for all to enjoy.  There are   currently 56 miles of developed greenway trails in Mecklenburg County, with more being built every year.
