Crabtree Creek Greenway

This greenway branches off from the White Oak Creek Greenway and heads north along the Crabtree Creek tributary within Fred G. Bond Metro Park.  Although it only goes a short distance through the park, the master plan calls for this greenway to connect up to an existing pedestrian underpass under Cary Parkway. From there it will head north, crossing into Morrisville and back into Cary, eventually connecting to the segment of Crabtree Creek Greenway slated to run along the south shore of Lake Crabtree to reach Black Creek Greenway.

The trail segment along the south shore of Lake Crabtree from Evans Road to Black Creek Greenway will be under construction starting in April 2017 with completion planned for Fall 2018.
