Mountain Creek Park - Catawba County, NC

The proposed Mountain Creek Park is a 589-acre tract of undeveloped land situated on Mountain Creek next to Lake Norman.  It is located in the Sherrills Ford Community just off of Little Mountain Road in southeastern Catawba County.  It was created through a public-private partnership between Catawba County, the Catawba Lands Conservancy, Duke Energy and Crescent Resources.  There are two conservations easements that cover the entire acreage which restricts the development of the proposed park to exclusively passive outdoor recreation opportunities.
