To help celebrate National Recreation & Park Month, Cary is hosting a “Croc Walk” at Ritter Park/Swift Creek Greenway on Friday, July 28th from 5:30 – 8:30 PM.
It costs $5 to register for residents ($8 for non-residents). Only one adult member needs to register per family.
Attendees will get a jibbetz for their Crocs, a treat from Kona Ice, and can enjoy live music and play yard games at Ritter Park after the walk. Those looking to register can do so here and search for the code “032044”
Two food trucks will also be present on-site for families looking to purchase dinner as well. Death By Taco (Mexican street food) and Pickin’ N Que’n (BBQ) will be the two trucks servicing the event.
You can park at Harold D. Ritter Park (301 W Lochmere Dr) for the event. The entrance to the Swift Creek Greenway (which was April’s Greenway of the Month) is located basically in the park. Swift Creek Greenway is about 1.2 miles long and is mostly flat, making it a fairly easy hike.
Swift Creek Greenway is unique in that it is the nation’s first greenway constructed constructed entirely from recycled products. The road is made with recycled asphalt, which is something you ponder as you Croc across the trail.
This family friendly event is one of the ways the town is celebrating National Recreation & Park Month. You can read about more events and things to do on Cary’s trails here.
