Explore The Oklawaha Greenway
The Oklawaha Greenway is a short 5-minute drive from downtown Hendersonville and a step into nature. Part of the watershed of Henderson County, the 3.5-mile greenway winds its way along Mud Creek, through wetlands, meadows of native flowers and grasses, and native forests. The greenway connects four parks around Hendersonville. The greenway is a local and national spot for birding as the natural habitat attracts a wide variety of birds. The greenway has been recognized recently by the Audubon Society.
The greenway provides a variety of activities for those wanting to commune with nature for the day. The greenway is fully paved making bike riding, jogging, walking or bird watching an enjoyable activity. The greenway is family-friendly and a way for the entire family to enjoy nature in a relaxed environment.
The greenway was created by the Apple Country Greenways Commission in 1999 and has become a vital piece of Hendersonville’s commitment to nature and the environment. Additional information about the greenway and its events can be found at: https://www.friendsofoklawaha.org/
