The Town of Huntersville is in the final design phase of the North Mecklenburg Park Greenway, which will be approximately 0.6 miles of paved greenway running through North Mecklenburg Park.
Amenities of the Trail: fitness stations, shelter, sitting areas, access to park amenities and mountain bike trail.
The trail corridor will link NC73 to the Harvest Point subdivision at Amber Field Drive and a new paved access path to the park for residents of The Hamptons subdivision.
This segment will extend the north/south link between Downtown Huntersville and NC73, which will eventually have a side path as part of the NC73 road project. The Town of Huntersville will be submitting an application for a PARTF Grant to help fund the construction of this greenway.

The Abernathy Park Master Plan was approved on October 3, 2022, and the Town of Huntersville received a $212,000 Accessibility for Parks Grant for this project on March 10, 2023. This grant in addition to the $200,000 allocated by the Town will fund these park improvements.
The Abernathy Park Project will reduce the size of the existing baseball field that will allow a walking trail around the perimeter of the site, new all-inclusive playground and basketball court to be located away from Glendale Drive and provide a safer play environment. This new layout will also allow space for a new covered shelter, seating areas and inclusive outdoor fitness stations. The reduced sized baseball field will still accommodate the existing teams that use it for practices.
This project is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2023.Abernathy Park Master Plan

This section of The Vine will provide families a safe route to school, a more enjoyable path for local residents to walk on to get to the downtown area. This section will eventually connect to the Meck County project, Torrence Trib II, that will run under interstate 77 to Rosedale Nature and Dog Park connecting to the existing Torrence Creek Greenway.
