The Upper Bee Branch Creek Restoration Project, now known as the Bee Branch Creek Greenway, began in June 2015, and was completed in July 2017. The project was finished approximately 3 months ahead of schedule and $800,000 under budget. The greenway is designed to take on storm water during rain events and move it safely through the area without flooding adjacent properties. It features a 1,938-foot long creek and floodplain, a multi-use trail system, a play area with slides, scenic overlooks, an urban orchard and garden, and an outdoor amphitheater which provides a venue for teaching and neighborhood gatherings.
