Improving McDowell County access to trails and more

Catawba Greenway Now Open

The City of Marion reopened the McDowell House side of the Joseph McDowell Historical Catawba River Greenway following cleanup from damage sustained from heavy rains earlier in the month.  The parking area is located directly behind the Pleasant Gardens Historical marker near Sonic Drive in.
As a reminder, Phase I of the Greenway, located on Sam Phillips Drive, will remained closed until further notice, so that a bridge can be replaced along the walking trail

The  MTA contributed $5000 to the City of Marion to help with rebuilding the  destroyed bridge.  If you would like to contribute to the Bridge Building Fund, please click here

The MTA thanks the City of Marion Public Works Department for getting the greenway cleaned up in such a timely fashion.
