Buffalo Creek Greenway and the Neuse River Walk

Beginning at the Smithfield Community Park where families can enjoy a picnic, playgrounds, and a one-mile trail around the park, there is even more to explore along the Buffalo Creek Greenway.  The greenway entrance is located at the back of the Smithfield Community Park, and this 3 mile walk takes visitors along the Swift Creek down to the Neuse River at the Smithfield Town Commons.  Several years ago, the Neuse River Walk opened and now this completed trail is part of the Mountains to the Sea Trail in North Carolina.  Smithfield Town Commons is home to the annual Smithfield Ham & Yam Festival held the first weekend in May each year.
