Third Creek Greenway begins in Bearden on Forest Park Blvd where it winds southeast along the shoreline of Third Creek before connecting to the 3-mile Neyland Greenway. The mid-portion of the Third Creek Greenway bisects Tyson Park where there are plenty of recreational activities to enjoy, plus picnic shelters and a restroom. Look for signage along Third Creek Greenway that will take you to the Sequoyah Greenway connection. Where the greenway begins behind the shopping center, the fork that heads north connects with the Bearden Village Greenwaywhich will travel west, paralleling Sutherland Ave.
Civil War enthusiasts can look for an earthen fort redan discovered recently by a local archeologist. The radan is loated near the railroad bridge off the Sutherland Ave entrance.
