“The Carolina Core is North Carolina’s next economic engine,” says Stan Kelly, President and CEO of Piedmont Triad Partnership.

Purpose and Vision at the Core. Public and private leadership in the Carolina Core is highly engaged and aligned on a vision for the future. The very formation of the Carolina Core is a result of regional partners coalescing around the area’s competitive assets to tell a collective story. Today, leaders in the Carolina Core come together to advance large development efforts that attract and retain the best talent and attract new companies that build out industry clusters. From Winston-Salem’s Innovation Quarter, one of the nation’s foremost urban research parks, to Greensboro’s Tanger Center for Performing Arts and High Point’s downtown Catalyst Project, to the PTI Aerospace Center and Whitaker Park developments, community leaders have rallied around transformational projects for the good of the entire region and its future,” states NCCarolinaCore.com.

CATES FARM COMMUNITY PARK OPENS NEAR MILL CREEK

Nestled just 100 yards from the Mill Creek community, Cates Farm Community Park is just a few miles from downtown Mebane off Hwy 119. The newly opened park sits on part of what was formerly the Swathmoor-Cates Family pickle farm.

Mebane acquired the 54-acre portion of the property from Unique Places LLC of Durham. Unique Places LLC agreed to sell the property to the city for less than market value, and work with the city to develop a “city within a park” destination that will benefit residents and visitors alike.

Unique Places says “with conservation easements in place to protect Mill Creek and other creeks that border the property, and the vision for conservation in place, this property holds tremendous potential as a natural, sustainable, open space area for the city and surrounding communities to enjoy for generations to come.”

The plans include wildflower fields, a full-sized disc golf course (the only one of its kind in the area) and more, in addition to the beautiful scenic walking trails currently open to the public. The Wildflower Loop is a half-mile winding trail, and the Forest Loop is a 1.25 mile hike into the woods, with markers every quarter mile along the walking path.

Questions about Cates Farm Park should be referred to the Mebane Recreation and Parks Department at (919) 563-3629.
