The Little Sugar Creek Greenway is an early success in Charlotte's grand plan to develop greenways with walking and bike trails along all of its major floodplains. It's a great place for a walk or leisurely bike ride. You'll see great blue herons and other wondrous critters along the creek, and come to understand Charlotte and its layout from a... More

My husband and I ride our bikes along this greenway a few times a week and we love it! It is a decent length and provides great views of the city at many points along the way. Also great for walks! We stop for ice cream sometimes along the way!

We spent about 2 hours waling up and down the greenway, stopped for a drink and just soaked in the City... there are many photo opportunities along the route and great views of downtown. We parked near one of our favorite Italian restaurants on Kings Street.

This is a nice amenity, but is sterile and hot in the summer due to the lack of shade trees. Also, Little Sugar Creek appears to have been channelized.

The main part of the greenway goes from 3rd/4th Streets downtown to Freedom Park. There are plenty of places to park and jump on the trail. And the trail does have extensions that can add some length onto your walk/run. Depending upon where you start, a nice 3 mile or so round trip in the city, along the creek, and... More

Nice place to go to get away from daily traffic and take a stroll on open paths. Parking access from multiple locations

Despite the hot weather our visit has been really pleasant. This little park, easly reachable from downtown with a 20 minutes walk, with fountains and walkable paths, is an incredible demonstration of how well public green can be maintened. At the end of the path, before going back to Charlotte downtown, don't miss a stop at the farmer's market, with... More

Very fun to walk this greenway in the daytime or early evening. There are places to eat and shopping all along the greenway. After walking the greenway it's great to grab a bite to eat or to run into Trader Joes for some great grub.

I like to walk and wasn't familiar with Charlotte. Started at the public market and then walked down Tyron and eventually found our way to the Little Sugar Creek. We planned to bike but one friend wasn't comfortable so we walked instead. You should know that you can pick up a bike at the Public Market for $8 hour. The... More

This is a great gem for the city of Charlotte - we walked 2 miles each way on Sunday a.m. and had a great time. Wonderful for walking, running or biking - and lots of fun to watch the ducks and geese swimming in the creek. Saw 5 turtles and a water snake!!! Really a lovely job that the city... More
