Friday Five: Trail Progression, Hard Cider, Bowling and Landscaping | Local News

In 2021, a 2.7-mile section was opened, extending out of Vietnam Veteran Park off Oakwood Avenue and Orphanage Road. It ends at Rogers Lake Road.

Obviously the Irish Buffalo Creek Greenway follows the creek. Concord has preliminary plans to complete the sections across the city in small phases. The latest grant will help.

Here are a few other relatively close projects that will receive funding in the latest round:

* $100,000 to construct a 2.75 mile segment of the Falcon Trail extending from an existing trail from Richfield Park to Richfield.

*$50,000 for construction of the Yadkin River Park Trailhead and Greenway Connector. This is the first step to provide a connection between Spencer and Salisbury and across the Wil-Cox Bridge to Davidson County.
