Cary is currently under a Stay-at-Home order in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Most public-facing and staffed facilities are closed to the public, including Town Hall. All playgrounds are closed but greenways, parks, and park restrooms remain open at this time. Some services have been canceled or are limited. Learn more.

AnnieJonesGreenwayMost parts of this greenway follow small streams; the whole trail is in woods. Annie Jones Greenway consists of two branches. The east branch starts at the intersection of Lake Pine Drive and Cary Parkway and ends at Gatehouse Drive. The west branch runs from McCloud Court through Annie Jones Park and across Tarbert Drive ending at the east branch a few hundred feet from SW Cary Parkway. Both branches are paved except for an unpaved section from McCloud Court to Annie Jones Park.
