The newest section of the Corolla Greenway is open for recreational use by pedestrians. This one-mile addition provides much-needed connectivity from the north end of Monteray Shores to the Brindley Sports Center in Corolla Light. The Corolla Greenway is a wide concrete path that runs along NC 12. It is a popular site for pedestrians to walk, run or use bicycles while enjoying the scenery of the Outer Banks and provides a safe transportation option when visiting local destinations and the beach.
The path is ADA compliant and includes benches and small pocket parks along its route. Motorized vehicles such as golf carts, scooters or mopeds are not allowed on the Greenway and bicyclists should use caution when passing walkers or runners. Users should also remember to cross NC 12 at designated intersections and be cautious in areas where the Greenway is in close proximity to the road. This latest project was the fifth phase of the Greenway_ construction, which began in 2011.
