City of Lenoir Public Works staff recently made two more greenway connections near the Lenoir Rotary Soccer Complex. The connections increase access to the greenway in the area.
Last week, Public Works staff paved a section of greenway that connects the westernmost parking lot at the soccer complex to the greenway. The new section is about 425 feet long and goes south from the parking lot and intersects with the current greenway.
Staff also completed a greenway connection at the intersection of Ebel Place and Sassafras Court in the Parkview subdivision. Staff paved a parking area at the intersection that connects Ebel Place to the greenway. Residents in the Parkview subdivision now have easy access to the greenway near their neighborhood.
The City of Lenoir Greenway offers more than 9 miles of path and trails for outdoor activities including running, walking, cycling, and mountain biking. These trails include the main greenway, the T.H. Broyhill Walking Park, and the greenway on Morganton Boulevard. The Zacks Fork Bike Trail offers nearly 3 miles of off-road trail for mountain biking.
