A Visit to 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, bobcats, 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.

If you would like to visit the Greenway and require assistance under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), please contact the Atlantic Recreation Center between 8:00am and 6:00pm, Monday through Friday, at 904-310-3350.

For individuals with disabilities, a 2-person GEM electric car is available for reservation at the Atlantic Recreation Center to travel through the Greenway.  Payment of a $100 refundable security deposit with a current and valid major credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover) is required, along with a driver's license.  Call (904) 310-3350 for availability and to reserve.
