Description

The Moss Creek section of this developing 14-mile Hector Henry Greenway is a perfect place to walk, run or bike. The trail is a peaceful paved surface trail that connects the local neighborhoods with the elementary and middle school. The 1.3-mile trail crosses a wetland and features educational signage along the way. These kiosks are a great way to learn about wetland ecology that the greenway resides. There is also an observation deck that looks out over a pond and provides an ideal viewing point for birds and wildlife. 

This segment of greenway will be part of the City of Concord's longest greenway project and is named in honor of Council Member Hector H. Henry II. This area along the Rocky River is considered part of the "spine" of the footprint of the Carolina Thread Trail and will ultimately connect Iredell, Mecklenburg, Cabarrus, Stanly and Anson counties. The segment in Concord will pass a number of destination points, including local public schools, Concord-Padgett Regional Airport, Concord Mills, Concord Convention Center, Rocky River Golf Course, zMAX Dragway and Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Mountain Creek, Park: New Park in Catawba County Built on Partnership
Along the shores of Lake Norman in Catawba County, N.C., the sounds of osprey, red-bellied woodpeckers and cicadas now mingle with the joyful squeals of children, friendly greetings from hikers and the whoosh of mountain bikes zipping by. Catawba County’s newest public park has been over 15 years in the making, and it is finally open.
