Trail Creek Greenway

A New Trail!

The Leisure Services Department will host a ribbon cutting ceremony and open the newly constructed Trail Creek Greenway at Trail Creek Park on Thursday, June 4 at 10:00 a.m.  The public is invited to attend. 

The Trail Creek Greenway, a paved multi-use path, is approximately one-mile in length and provides opportunities to experience nature in a variety of ways while linking parks, neighborhoods, and points of interest such as a Civil War gun emplacement site.  The path is the newest section of the existing Oconee River Greenway, a 3.5 mile trail that connects Sandy Creek Nature Center with Dudley Park and the University of Georgia.  It is available for use by pedestrians, bicyclists, and any non-motorized modes of transportation.

Attendees will assemble at the trailhead located near the Trail Creek Street park entrance.  Parking is available inside of the park in designated areas along Trail Creek Street.
