Join us on Saturday, October 3rd from 9 am - 12 noon at the Lindsay Pettus Greenway for the Catawba Riversweep! Help us clean Gills Creek, a tributary of the Catawba-Wateree River Basin, which runs along the Greenway's path in Lancaster, SC. Sign up here and select "Catawba below Lake Wylie - Lindsay Pettus Greenway" when registering.
We are awaiting the day to open the new Lindsay Pettus Greenway here in Lancaster County. It's sure to be the coolest boardwalk in town. Until then, we want to remind our curious and enthusiastic residents that our greenway is still under active construction and should not be visited until it is officially open. Feel free to enjoy many other nearby trails in the Charlotte region by visiting this trail map from Carolina Thread Trail.
During this unusual season, residents throughout Lancaster County are deepening their connection with nature. A vibrant natural world continues to offer refuge, solace, and enjoyment. We envision the Lindsay Pettus Greenway to be a place where everyone is able to experience the rich benefits of the outdoors.
The Lindsay Pettus Greenway will be a hard-surface trail system that weaves through neighborhoods, schools, parks, health facilities, and the downtown district within the City of Lancaster. Phase 1 is the first 2 miles of the 6-mile trail system.
Greenways and trails have been shown to improve health, attract business, boost tourism, bring people together, increase mobility, and help the environment.
Trails attract tourists and create the kind of quality of life that promotes business and puts money into local economies.
Trails support an active lifestyle that improves the public's health. Physical activity helps prevent heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, obesity, colon cancer, and depression.
Trails connect people to neighborhoods, schools, businesses, and other places of interest. Trails foster community and can help bridge divides.
Trails can help improve air and water quality by providing enjoyable options for non-motorized transportation that reduce air pollution while helping manage soil erosion caused by road runoff.
