City adds more paved trail to greenway

City workers pave the access trail at Wilson Athletic Park in Lenoir

The City of Lenoir Public Works Department recently added more paved trail to the city greenway system.

Last week, the Street Division paved the greenway access trail that connects the parking lot at Wilson Athletic Park to the greenway. The access trail is Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessible and provides another connection to the greenway system.

The City of Lenoir greenway offers nearly six miles of paved trail, and more than four miles of gravel path including the Zacks Fork Mountain Bike Trail.

In the future, the City plans to add about 2.7 more miles of greenway by paving the section old railroad that runs from Creekway Drive through downtown to Morganton Boulevard. Public Works plans to start paving the rail trail at North Main Street and head south. Google is building a trail along Morganton Boulevard between Harrisburg Drive and the rail trail. This will eventually connect the rail trail greenway to Mulberry Recreation Center.
