People walking on the greenway trail

Lake Boone Trail to House Creek Greenway Connector

Neighborhood & Community Connections Program

This project is part of the Neighborhood & Community Connections (N&CC) Program. The N&CC Program is an effort to identify, prioritize, and build new, walkable connections to parks and greenways. The N&CC Program was designed to promote health equity throughout the City, using geo-spatial modeling and data analysis to guide investment in those communities which are most at-risk of negative health outcomes and most in need of improved access to outdoor recreation opportunities.

The proposed project includes the construction of a 10’ wide asphalt trail from Lake Bone Trail (road) to the House Creek Trail (Greenway). Lake Boone Trail (road) is currently under design for safety improvements, therefore, the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department is collaborating with Engineering Services for a combined project.

N&CC projects are funded through the 2014 Parks Bond Referendum and land acquisition funds, and includes projects that are primarily focused on improving access to both recreation facilities and greenway trails.

The Capital Area Greenway System was first adopted by Raleigh City Council in 1976. This plan proposed a system of linear parks located primarily along rivers, streams, and creeks and included the opportunity for an interconnected system of pedestrian trails across the region.
