Join the Town of Cary, Town of Apex, and representatives from Wake County to celebrate the opening of the White Oak Creek Greenway connection as part of the East Coast Greenway on Saturday, March 9, at 2 p.m. Enjoy the ribbon cutting at the boardwalk entrance to the trail followed by live music, refreshments and the opportunity to explore the greenway. Parking will be available at Green Level High School (7600 Roberts Road, Cary), with the celebration site just a short walk away. Transportation from the parking lot to the event will be provided for persons with mobility issues.
This project is a joint effort between the Towns of Apex and Cary and Wake County and extends the White Oak Creek Greenway from Cary through Apex to a connection with the American Tobacco Trail near Wimberley Road. The White Oak Creek Greenway originates in Bond Park in Cary and consists of segments of trail that extend to Green Level Church Road in West Cary, which is a combined distance of 4.7 miles.
The White Oak Creek Greenway, along with the Black Creek Greenway, represent two of the Town of Cary's most important regional greenways. When completed, these two trails will extend over a distance of 14 miles and connect to the American Tobacco Trail, Durham, Bond Park, Lake Crabtree County Park, Umstead State Park and Raleigh. This trail section within Cary was recently added to the East Coast Greenway, which will eventually go from Maine to Florida.
