Improving McDowell County access to trails and more

Coming Soon


County Park

We held the official groundbreaking of Phase III of the Joseph McDowell Historical Catawba Greenway at the County Park section off Old Greenlee Road in May. Work is progressing on the site with the anticipation of completion by mid-summer.  In addition to an improved entrance and parking, there will be a picnic pavilion, river access, and about 2,800 linear feet of greenway along the river.

Planning for connecting this area to the existing greenway and extending west will continue.
