The City of Belmont and the Gaston County Health Department have partnered together to provide signs marking three walking routes (PDF) in the Downtown and East Belmont areas. These routes include a one mile route, two mile route, and three mile route. The signs are located at intersections where the routes make a turn.
The Downtown routes are centered around the 3 downtown parks:
East Belmont Routes
The East Belmont routes are centered around the commercial area of Catawba Street and Crescent Park. Please be careful when crossing Keener Boulevard, and only cross it at the intersections with stoplights. Remember to cross with traffic.
Please note that sidewalks are along most of the routes, but are missing on Lincoln Street,Sacco Street, and on portions of North Main Street and Elizabeth Avenue. Please be careful when walking on or along streets where there are no sidewalks.
Eat Smart, Move More
These walking route signs were part of an Eat Smart, Move More North Carolina grant that the Gaston County Health Department received in 2009 to promote physical activity and healthy eating in Belmont.
