This park is a great place to spend a day outside! There are picnic areas, a fishing pier, a kids’obstacle course, a basketball court and a disc golf course if you’re looking for recreational activities. My favourite part of the park, though, was the nature preserve and its lovely hiking trails. I picked up a map at the nature centre — which also has some interesting displays of local reptiles — and headed out on a 90 minute walk. The trails were well maintained, wide and easy to hike. They were also well marked. I met an eastern box turtle along the way and only came across one other person. It was a very peaceful and beautiful hike. Half the hiking trails are closed right now because of a stream restoration but there are still options to keep you walking for a couple of hours if you are inclined to do so. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting the area who likes to go for walks in the woods.

The city spent a LOT of money on this (I live outside Charlotte), but it was worth it. I like to have lunch in the Metropolitan shopping area then walk it off on the Greenway. Highly recommended.

Another nice park to stretch your legs and get out in nature. We went on New Year's Day and it was rather busy but plenty of room for everyone to enjoy. The trails are flat, either dirt or packed gravel and wide enough for walkers and bikes to share. Lots of nature, we saw ducks feeding in slough and a heard of deer cross in front of us!
