New Greenway Links Cary to Raleigh
A new link in Cary’s greenway opens a new region for cycling and walking. With a final half-mile stretch and a footbridge recently completed, the Black Creek Greenway officially runs from Bond Park in western Cary to Umstead State Park, the huge natural area in western Raleigh. From there, a 5-mile gravel path connects to Raleigh’s greenway network. There are no plans for a paved connection between the two municipalities. Though the 5-mile connection through Umstead is unpaved, it’s open to bicycles and pedestrians. The White Oak Creek Greenway (in image above), along with the Black Creek Greenway are regional greenways which link within Bond Park. When completed, these two trails will extend a distance of over 15 miles and connect the American Tobacco Trail, Bond Park, Lake Crabtree County Park and Umstead State Park. When Cary's White Oak Greenway is finished about 2017, Cary residents may go as far as Durham on greenways.
White Oak Creek Greenway reopened in April 2013 and consists of several segments of trail which extend from Bond Park to Green Level Church Road, an overall distance of 5.07 miles. Cary's Parks and Rec. web site has a useful map http://www.townofcary.org/Departments/Parks__Recreation___Cultural_Resou... to guide you to access points.
