The Matrimony Creek Greenway is an approximately 1-mile nature trail beginning at 1335 Washington Street next to Hampton Heights Baptist Church. The trail extends to the picturesque waterfall at the northern most section of the trail. The project was made possible by a generous Duke Energy Water Resources Fund which provided 70% of the trail costs. The Wright Company donated property or granted access to much of the greenway. The City of Eden Streets and Collection and Distribution Departments built the trail and did a fantastic job, while saving taxpayer money. Phase II of the Matrimony Creek Greenway will be constructed in 2018-19. The plan is to create an access for Douglass Elementary School students and an outdoor classroom.
