The Town of Huntersville is in the design phase of the North Mecklenburg Park Greenway, which will be approximately 0.6 miles of paved greenway running through North Mecklenburg Park.
Amenities of the Trail: fitness stations, shelter, sitting areas, access to park amenities and mountain bike trail.
The trail corridor will link NC73 to the Harvest Point subdivision at Amber Field Drive and a new paved access path to the park for residents of The Hamptons subdivision.
This segment will extend the north/south link between Downtown Huntersville and NC73, which will eventually have a side path as part of the NC73 road project. The Town of Huntersville will be submitting an application for a PARTF Grant to help fund the construction of this greenway.

Phase 1 is complete and open - Phase 2 is under construction and should be completed by the end of September
This section of The Vine will provide families a safe route to school, a more enjoyable path for local residents to walk on to get to the downtown area. This section will eventually connect to the Meck County project, Torrence Trib II, that will run under interstate 77 to Rosedale Nature and Dog Park connecting to the existing Torrence Creek Greenway.
