WHAT IS A GREENWAY?
A greenway is a linear park. It is about conservation, recreation, environmental education and alternative transportation. Our greenway is an investment in the future of Forsyth County, a county with open green spaces for people as well as natural areas for plants and animals. The Big Creek Greenway in Forsyth County is a 12-foot wide concrete and boardwalk path meandering through the deciduous woods along the Big Creek. The greenway offers an ideal setting for walking, jogging, biking and inline skating.
HOW LONG IS THE BIG CREEK GREENWAY?
Phases 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the Big Creek Greenway located in Forsyth County span from McFarland Parkway to Kelly Mill Road for approximately 9.6 miles. When the future Phase 5 is complete, the greenway will span approximately 15 miles in Forsyth County.
A large portion of Phase 1 of the Big Creek Greenway in Forsyth County was funded by state and federal funds. Phases 2 and 3 were funded by Impact Fees. Phase 4 was funded by the $100 Million Parks, Recreation and Green Space Bond approved by voters in February 2008. Funding for Phase 5 is also slated to come from the $100 Million Parks, Recreation and Green Space Bond approved by voters in February 2008.
