Oklawaha Greenway - Clean Sweep!

Saturday, September 06, 2014

Grab your Pick Axe and Shovel and don't forget the Rake!


Volunteers from the Blue Ridge Bike Club in cooperation with the Rotary Club of Hendersonville spent about two hours on Saturday morning to make a clean sweep of the the first half mile of the Oklawaha Greenway from Jackson Park to the Four Seasons overpass.

Oklawaha Greenway Trail travels through the Jackson Park Nature Trail, passes by King Memorial and Sullivan Park, through Mud Creek and ends in Patton Park.

The City of Hendersonville recently announced that it has been awarded a 1.2 million dollar Bicycle and Pedestrian Improvement Grant to extend the Oklawaha Greenway from Patton Park to Berkeley Mills Park on Balfour Road. The grant is administered by the North Carolina Department of Transportation and utilizes federal and state funds to support bicycle and pedestrian improvement projects.
