Parks & Trails

mineralspringparkbigcreek

Williamston’s Mineral Spring Park is possibly the third oldest public park in the country.┬áThe town also┬áhas two smaller parks. Mineral Spring Park is located in the center of downtown and adjacent to other recreational areas that include baseball and soccer fields, Mineral Spring Trail and a Veterans Park.

The town is also working to become a bicycle and pedestrian friendly community and last year complete the first section of Mineral Spring Trail which extends from the Veterans Park along Big Creek, under Hwy. 20 beside the Williamston Fire Department. The town is currently in the process of applying for a grant to extend the trail.

Williamston’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan envisions a connected network of on- and off-street bikeways, walkways, and trails that provide safe and family-friendly access between neighborhoods and community destinations for all ages and abilities.
