paved greenway trail


Walnut Creek Trail


The existing Walnut Creek Trail extends from Lake Johnson Park to the Neuse River Trail. Sections of the Walnut Creek Trail are some of the first constructed trails within the Capital Area Greenway system and is proposed to be improved to meet the current needs of greenway users. The section of Walnut Creek Trail included as part of this project extends from Lake Wheeler Road to Sunnybrook Road. Improvements include the rehabilitation of the trail including a new base, new asphalt surface, trail widening, grading and drainage enhancements, improved community access to and from adjacent communities, safety enhancements at at-grade crossings, pavement markings, and pedestrian structure replacement.
