Anne Springs Close Greenway turns 25; reopens with limitations on April 27
On Earth Day, April 22, 2020, the Anne Springs Close Greenway celebrated 25 years of the beautiful green space located in the heart of Fort Mill. In 1995, Anne Springs Close and her eight children dedicated the 2,100 acres of land as a natural barrier to urban development sprawling from Charlotte and a place for outdoor activities. As promised, it remains a preserved greenway for residents of the Charlotte Metro Region.
You'll find new paths to discover, strawberries to pick, the Cadillac of dog parks, summer concerts, as well as camping, kayaking, biking, running, horseback riding, and races - there’s something for everyone to enjoy. With the new Greenway Gateway facility, you can now buy Greenway swag, grab a meal, and enjoy a beer or glass of wine.
Due to COVID-19 the Greenway has been closed, but with recent findings, it will reopen on Monday, April 27! Please read the guidelines provided by the Greenway:
Monday through Thursday: trails open to Members and General Public
Friday through Sunday: Entry and trails will be open to Greenway Members only and evaluated weekly
All Greenway facilities will remain closed, including the Greenway Gateway
The Gateway Canteen will continue to offer take-out family meals for purchase online only and not for consumption on the Greenway
If an entrance is at an unsafe capacity, we may temporarily close certain entrances to encourage use of less utilized entrances and trails.
Save the date
Assuming things are back to normal come fall, save the date for Saturday, September 26, for a postponed Earth Day Celebration!
