Charlotte Rail Trail

Category: Health & Beauty
Award: Project With Potential in 2017
Year Won: 2017
Pick: Editor's Pick

On warm, sunny days, the sidewalks of this 4.5-mile pathway along the light rail line, from Sedgefield through South End and into uptown, are crowded. Parents push strollers, millennials walk dogs, and runners of all ages and ability run. The Rail Trail initiative, led by Center City Partners, calls for even more public art and gathering spaces that would put the project in the same league as ambitious (and better-funded) linear parks in New York, Miami, and Atlanta.
