Celebrate 40 Years of Cary Greenways

2019 marks the 40th Anniversary of the first Cary Greenway, and we think that's worth celebrating! We're planning a year full of activities and events throughout Cary. Check back for details as we finalize plans, and check out the spread in the Winter/Spring Program Guide to learn about how this Gold Medal Award-winning system began.

Cary Greenways Spread

Cary is a Walk-Friendly Community!

Walk Friendly Communities (WFC) re-designated Cary as a National Walk-Friendly Community at a new Silver Level status (previously bronze) on April 25, 2017. The Walk-Friendly designation is based on community efforts to expand opportunities for walking and improve pedestrian safety across a wide range of programs and activities, from planning and design to outreach and law enforcement. Highlights from Cary's renewal include its robust trail system, bike and hike mobile application, way finding signage, connectivity policy, the newly adopted Cary Community Plan, Watch for Me NC program partnership and the sidewalk request program. Learn more about the Walk-Friendly Community program and Cary's involvement.

The Town of Cary has historically supported and developed opportunities for pedestrian use of its parks and surroundings. Within its parks, there are numerous miles of natural walking trails. Complementing these inside park trails is a system of greenways criss-crossing Cary that the Town continues to develop.
