Enjoying Jacksonville's Greenways and Blueways


There are more than 21 miles of trails and greenways within the City limits of Jacksonville. These paths are open to pedestrians and bicyclists to visit City parks, memorials, waterfront, and other places of interest. You can park and ride your bike from one of our public parks, enjoy a leisurely nature walk by the water at Sturgeon City, or take up the challenge at the Commons Challenge Course. Check out the Jacksonville Trails & Greenways Map to plan your next outdoor adventure. 

We've also got some great fishing spots, and easy access launches for boats, kayaks, and other watercraft to get you on the New River while in Jacksonville. 

The New River features some of the best paddling and fishing in eastern North Carolina year-round. The slow current is ideal for kayakers and canoers of any skill level. There are multiple public water access areas in Jacksonville. Jacksonville Landing is located in the downtown area and features three boat launches and a beach area for launching canoes and kayaks. Also at the Landing is a great fishing pier for those who want to enjoy the river without getting on the water. Jacksonville Landing is located between two bridges at 135 S Marine Boulevard in downtown Jacksonville.

The Riverwalk Marina, located at 15 Kerr St, is a great place to take in the views or launch your kayak or canoe.

For launching on smaller waterways, visit Northeast Creek Park at 910 Corbin Street. Northeast Creek is a tributary to the New River.
