Abbey Creek Greenway


The Abbey Creek Greenway will be a 1.2 mile trail destination located at the entrance into Gaston County,  just as you cross over the Catawba River. This greenway will run along the creek just south of Wilkinson Blvd from E Catawba Street to Park Street, with connection potential at Kevin Loftin Park, the planned Belmont Recreation Center/ CityWorks building, and Gaston College East Campus.


Current Status

In May 2019, the City of Belmont approved schematic plans for  The Morris at Belmont , which incorporates the design and construction of the portion of the Abbey Creek Greenway within their development area.  In June 2020, City Council approved a contract to begin preliminary engineering and design services for the remaining segments of this corridor.

Construction is anticipated to begin in Summer 2022 on the entire alignment.

In July, The City of Belmont was awarded a $25,000 grant from the Carolina Thread Trail to assist with the preliminary engineering and design of this corridor.
