I actually live in this neighborhood and
0:27
it's given me a safe option to get from
0:29
Villa Heights into uptown and so I it
0:32
also is a beautiful section and it's
0:35
going to be able to give people more
0:37
options and it's giving me more options
0:39
to get the places I need to go I've
0:43
lived here for three years and Villa
0:44
Heights and I've seen the trail make a
0:46
lot of improvements in the neighborhood
0:48
also we have safer ways that connect the
0:50
neighborhoods like Villa Heights
0:51
optimist Park and Belmont now that we
0:53
can go under the bridge rather than
0:55
cross that dangerous intersection at
0:57
North Davidson and Parkwood Road I've
0:58
seen a lot of improvements what I really
1:01
love about the vision of the system is
1:04
the fact that I've seen another city how
1:06
trails like this can really energize and
1:09
help the city with some of it with some
1:12
of its transportation there are people
1:14
who would opt to walk the work or ride a
1:16
bike over driving with us with a better
1:19
pay for infrastructure having this
1:21
infrastructure in place having the
1:24
having people be able to pass under Park
1:26
woods is key and as I ride home from
1:29
work I've noticed more and more people
1:31
utilizing this green one

Map of segment 4, which is 0.40 miles long and runs between Parkwood Avenue and Davidson Street at 24th via Cordelia ParkPROJECT WAS COMPLETED IN MAY 2017​​​​

This project created a portion of the Cross Charlotte Trail that extends Little Sugar Creek Greenway under Parkwood Avenue and through Cordelia Park to Davidson Street, with a connection to 24th Street. It was built jointly by the City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County.

The goals for this section of the trail are to be the following:

  • ​Comfortable  - separated from streets and motor traffic

  • Accessible and bicycle-friendly - hard surface suitable for bikes and wheelchairs, smooth turns and limited slopes to meet ADA requirements

  • Enjoyable - Amenities to enhance enjoyment and safety, such as signage, benches, trashcans, landscaping, aesthetic treatments and public art

  • Expandable - Provide opportunities for additional connections and amenities in the future

Upcoming public meetings will be posted on this page and in the citywide events calendar.

Funded jointly by the City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County​
