The Connect Stallings Recreation & Greenway Master Plan envisions an interconnected linear park and greenway system that links unique pocket parks, open spaces, waterways, and community assets over 30 miles of trails.

The Town of Stallings recently completed a recreation and greenway planning process to establish vital green spaces and parks to serve its citizens, improve quality of life, and link key community assets. 

The Connect Stallings plan is organized according to three planning sections: North, Central, and South.  The greenway system is anchored by the “Stallings Spine,” extending through the center of Stallings from Lawyers Road to Colonel Francis Beatty Park.

Key Projects:

Blair Mill Nature Park

Stallings Spine

Vickery Greenway
