Raleigh | Walnut Creek Greenway
In the the east/west scheme of Raleigh’s greenway ladder, the Walnut Creek Greenway occupies the southern rung. At present, 7 miles of the greenway is complete, from Worthdale Park west to Lake Wheeler Road and N.C. State’s Centennial Campus. On the west end, greenway is being constructed through Centennial Campus that will link with 6.7 miles of existing Raleigh greenway to and around Lake Johnson. On the east end, the Walnut Creek Greenway will extend another 4.5 miles to connect with the under-construction, 28-mile Neuse River Greenway.
2.9 miles of that later stretch is funded and construction should be complete by summer 2012, says Raleigh Senior Greenway Planner Vic Lebsock. When it’s all done, you’ll be able to take greenway about 19 miles across the city’s south side, from the Neuse River to past Lake Johnson.
