Join the Greenway Family
Nestled amid beautiful lakes and hardwood forests, the Anne Springs Close Greenway℠ is a natural preserve more than twice the size of Central Park, minutes south of Charlotte in Fort Mill, SC. Its 2,100 acres serve as a natural buffer from urban development and provide a wide-open space for countless activities – from hiking, biking and horseback riding to picnics, kayaking and more.
The land has ties to the Catawba Indians and the Civil War and has been permanently preserved for public use. The children of Anne Springs Close donated the land in honor of her lifelong commitment to recreation and the environment to provide a natural landscape for the community to enjoy. The Greenway℠ contains native plants and animals, historic buildings, a 40-mile network of trails, Greenway Gateway welcome center and facilities for weddings and other special events. As a non-profit organization, it depends on memberships, program fees as well as private donations to support annual operations. Main entrances include Lake Haigler, Adventure Road, Dairy Barn and Blue Star, all of which provide additional information and trail maps. Whether it be through educational trips, special events, summer camps, individual visits or volunteer opportunities, be sure to explore the Greenway℠ and take advantage of everything there is to offer year-round
The Greenway℠ has a variety of memberships and clubs available to join. Broaden your horizons, celebrate nature and support a mission-based nonprofit!
