This section of Swift Creek Greenway, which will be accessible to walkers, runners and cyclists, will follow Swift Creek from Lake Wheeler Park to Vandora Springs Road in Garner where the trail will connect to the town’s South Garner Greenway Extension.

A community meeting was held on June 7, 2023 where maps and conceptual designs of the greenway were shared. View the maps and conceptual designs at

When complete, the Swift Creek Greenway will serve as an alternate transportation opportunity, connect residents to nature, provide an environmental education resource, and create new recreational opportunities between Apex, Cary, Raleigh and Garner. The design process will take approximately one year, wrapping up in spring 2024. Construction would be dependent on future funding.
