Jesup McMillan Creek Greenway

The City of Jesup has developed the McMillan Creek Greenway over several years through several phases: phases 1 and 2 have been completed, and phase 3 is underway. The creation of, and enhancements to, the Greenway have been included as both short-term and long-term work activities in the Wayne County-Jesup-Odum-Screven comprehensive plan. The Greenway was created by restoring the creek, which had been channelized over the years, to its natural ecosystem and adding paths and trails alongside the creek. The primary purpose was to provide a scenic recreation area, while at the same time, to encourage walking within the community and reduce pollution from runoff into the creek. It includes a "people trail” for walking, jogging, bicycling and roller-blading along one side, and an equestrian trail along the other. The paths allow children in several neighborhoods to walk to the nearby schools more easily. Wayne County and Jesup Comp Plan
