This greenway encircles Symphony Lake with a smooth asphalt trail and skirts along the outdoor performance venue, Koka Booth Amphitheatre. On the east end of Symphony Lake the trail connects to the Swift Creek Greenway located just across Regency Parkway. Swift Creek Greenway crosses through Hemlock Bluffs Nature Preserve connecting to Ritter Park. The Symphony Lake greenway heads out to the west of the lake across a flood plain and connects to an asphalt greenway that winds along the western side of Regency Parkway finishing at Glade Park Road. Symphony Lake is the home of the yearly Cary Road Race.

Nice flat loop to walk, run, ride bikes. See heron, ducks, turtles, and more. Beware if events are going on at adjacent Koka Booth Amphitheater, they may close that half of the loop but you can go around.
