Trailhead Location: Bakers Creek Park MAP
The Baker’s Creek Greenway runs through Baker’s Creek Park and connects the 8th Street Greenway with Baker’s Creek Park and the Village Park. The 8th Street Greenway is a 10-foot-wide paved trail and is a perfect place to walk, run, or bike. The 1.5-mile trail connects Loop Road to 8th Street, crosses 8th Street and continues to West A Street. Once the Greenway crosses West A Street, it ties into the existing Bakers Creek Park Greenway.
Highlights along the Baker's Creek Greenway include the GI Memorial House Museum, Kannapolis Cemetery, and Village Park Rotary Express Train and Splash Pad. The GI Memorial House is a historic house dating back to 1945. The home, which is located at 905 King Street, was constructed to aid with the housing shortage. For more information about the GI Memorial House or to schedule a tour, please visit the Kannapolis History Associates website.
Additional Directions: Please note, Bakers Creek Park has a gated parking lot and is only open during park hours. Cars left past closing time may be locked in over night. However, both Village Park and the YMCA lots are open lots and can be accessed at any time of day, including early morning.
