Lower First Creek Greenway

Directions:  James White Parkway to Summit Hill Exit. Right off exit, right on Central Avenue, right on Magnolia, left on Winona Street. Two blocks park will be on left and right side of street.

The First Creek Greenway in Caswell Park is located the park's western section, located off Winona Street. The greenway circumvents the accessible (ADA) Ashley Nicole Playground as well as gardens and an open space. This greenway is planned to eventually connect under the interstate to First Creek Greenway in First Creek Park.

The greenway includes a pedestrian bridge in the vicinity of Grainger Avenue, Luttrell Street, and Hoitt Avenue.  The pedestrian bridge was renamed the Chester “Chet” Kilgore Pedestrian Bridge to memorialize decades of time Mr. Kilgore gave to his beloved neighborhood.
