Anderson Point Park

potw-2016oct03The Anderson Point Park named for the Anderson Family who resided on the property is now owned by the City of Raleigh and is located where Crabtree Creek flows into the Neuse River.

Not only do two waterways connect at the park but two greenways that follow both of them connect as seen in the picture. The Neuse River Greenway, that is part of the Mountain to the Sea Trail, heads north to Buffaloe Road Athletic Park then to the Falls Lake Dam and south to Poole Road Park and into Johnson County. Crabtree Creek Trail heads west by Kiwanis, Rothgeb and North Hills Parks and will eventually connect to William B. Umstead State Park. Runners and cyclists can go for miles only crossing a few roads while looking at nature around them. There is the Anderson Point Trail inside the park that makes a loop for those interested in a short trip.

 

To get on the water, there is a boat ramp on the Neuse River for canoes, kayaks and other boats. To get out of the water there are boat ramps at parks downstream.
