The Lindsay Pettus Greenway-Gills Creek Nature Pavilion, Trail, and Observation Piers

Lindsay Pettus Greenway

This project will construct a trail and pier overlooks to provide recreational trail users access to Gills Creek in Lancaster, SC.  

Counties Impacted:

  • Lancaster

Flowing from east to west through the City of Lancaster, Gills Creek is part of the Catawba River Watershed and is home to the endangered Carolina Heelsplitter Mussell.  These mussells are important to the ecosystem, providing a food source for other animals, stabilizing the creek bed, and filtering the water.  The Lindsay Pettus Greenway is a partner with the Katawba Valley Land Trust in conserving and restoring this important watershed and habitat, educating the public about its significance, and providing accessibility that will  increase greenway users' interaction with and appreciation of the natural world that lies mere steps away from our urban environment."
