I love spring time as I espcially love spending times outdoors with my husband, 2 girls and our 2 dogs – I think the dogs love it the best. Living in North Raleigh is a great place to play outdoors as we have easy access to all the trails and open areas of Falls Lake and the Neuse River. I recently read an article and was excited to hear that a new 8 mile section of green way in North Raleigh will be open in the future thanks to the new stimulus package. Whether you agree with the stimulus package or not we can all enjoy improvements like this. My 2 dogs Jeter and Brady are especially thankful. See below for some more information on the green way expansion from the News & Observer article. Click here to read the entire article.
Hope to see you on the trails – current or new!

RALEIGH — A new section of the popular Neuse River Greenway will soon grow by nearly eight miles, from the Falls Lake dam to the WRAL soccer fields off Perry Creek Road, becoming a link in the emerging Mountains-to-Sea Trail — and the American taxpayers are helping to pay for it.
Raleigh expects to receive about $3.25 million in federal economic stimulus money to help pay for the project, which city bond voters approved two years ago. The greenway eventually will meander south 28 miles to the Johnston County line. A group called Friends of the Mountain-to-Sea Trail hopes some of the state’s share of federal stimulus funds can be used to expand parts of that statewide trail and others across North Carolina.
