The trails at Creekside Park were created due to the efforts of several interest groups as well as individual citizens. The need for walking trails were identified during the Parks and Recreation Master Plan process. The city has created a Pedestrian Network Plan (PNP).
The plan calls for 34 miles of sidewalk and 13.5 miles of greenways. These sidewalks and greenways are designed to be interconnected to allow a citizen the opportunity to walk from one side of the city to the other. Currently, there is just over 3 miles of greenway in close proximity to Creekside Park.
Creekside Park’s Disc Golf Course is an 18 hole course designed for recreational play as well as tournament play. The Course was designed by Russell Schwarz with Innova Disc Golf and was officially opened in 2011.
The Course was made possible by an NCPARTF Grant (North Carolina Parks and Recreation Trust Fund) that the City received in 2007. The course also has a 6 hole novice loop designed for beginners and senior adults. New hole design signs and directional signs provided by the Randolph County TDA helps make this a first-class course!
Creekside Park’s Orienteering Course is a 1.24-mile course consisting of 12 control points, where an individual or group can test their navigation skills through diverse terrain. An alternate course (0.57 mile) is also available which avoids the woods.
Whether for leisure or competition, participants can race against the clock to locate the control points. All that is needed to complete the course is a compass, or a smartphone compass application, and the course map (listing the distance and direction to each control point and showing their location relative to park features).
Creekside Park’s Orienteering Course was made possible by Archdale resident, Brent Owens, a local Boy Scouts of America member. Brent designed the course and installed the control points for his Eagle Scout Service Project. Control points are marked by 4X4 numbered posts and each is engraved with one of the 12 points of the Scout Law.
