Greenway Projects

FUTURE Wolf Meadow Branch

Project Summary
A proposed greenway/multi-use path following portions of the historic route known as the Great Wagon Road.

Project Area
Coddle Creek Greenway

Project Description

Wolf Meadow Branch is a tributary of Coddle Creek, intersecting with the creek south of the Cabarrus County’s Frank Liske Park. North of Concord Parkway S/US 29, the branch begins near the tracings of the Great Philadelphia Wagon Road (aka ‘Great Wagon Road’ or ‘Carolina Road’), which was a primary route for the early settlement of the southern United States. Beginning in Philadelphia, the ‘road’ stretched through Cabarrus County on its path during the 1700’s to Augusta, GA—a distance of more than 800 miles. 

Generally trending along and near current Concord Parkway/US 29, the City has proposed a greenway/multi-use path that would generally follow portions of the historic route, creating cross-connectivity between the Coddle Creek and Irish Buffalo Creek basins; and a greenway along Wolf Meadow Branch to Roberta Road and further south.
