Egans Creek Greenway
A protected area of over 300 acres that runs north to south along Egans Creek, the Greenway was opened for public use in the summer of 2000 as an undeveloped park for passive recreational use.
Its grass-covered roads serve as a network of trails that are suitable for walking and bicycling, and its environment exhibits a variety of natural wildlife and vegetation. Local wildlife, such as alligators, snakes, marsh rabbits, and many birds, may be enjoyed from a distance. Benches and interpretive displays are located throughout the Greenway, and restrooms are available at the Nature Pavilion, located at the Greenway entrance behind the Atlantic Recreation Center on Atlantic Avenue.
Egans Creek Greenway brochures (with trails maps) are available at the Atlantic Recreation Center office and trailheads at Atlantic Avenue, Jasmine Street, and Sadler Road; or download one here:
