Description
Waypoints (0)

This greenway encircles Symphony Lake with a smooth asphalt trail and skirts along with 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. Accessibility: There is a paved parking lot off of Regency Parkway, but it is unclear if any of them are designated handicapped-accessible spaces. The trail surface is paved asphalt, smooth, and typically at least 6 feet wide. The estimated grade is gentle (3% or less), except for one moderately steep section downhill at 0.3 miles going north, so this trail will likely be navigable for most wheelchairs/mobility equipment or strollers. There are benches along the trail for resting.

Quick loop on all paved surface. Good for walking, biking, leashed dogs, and strollers. Most of the path is around the lake. A small portion is on a sidewalk adjacent to a road. Plenty of benches to sit on around the lake.

Small walking trail, flat and paved cement. Great for the dogs and interesting to see the local wildlife flying by, we saw a beautiful crane! Half in the shade and half in the sun at 3pm (early March). The mile will take 30 minutes walking!

Nice short paved short loop trail around quiet Symphony Lake in Regency Park. Great for picnics, watching fireworks, or listening to local concerts, connects with Swift Creek Trails. Also great for a short run. There is also a good chance you'll run into the local flock of geese along the route.

First to Review

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.
