Southbridge GreenwaySouthbridge Greenway winds along the edge of a tributary floodplain and is within the Cary Park, Southbridge, and Greystone Developments. It is a combination of developer-built and federal grant funded Town of Cary projects. The highlight is a 35-foot timber bridge over the stream which eventually flows into Cary Park Lake. The southern end connects up with the Morrisville Parkway Street-Side Trail, which is nearly a mile long.
