Forsyth County considers Belews Lake for new regional park

Published 12:00 am Thursday, December 6, 2018

Forsyth County is considering the purchase, preservation and development of approximately 215 acres of Duke Energy land for a new public park site on Craig Road in Belews Creek. The county anticipates any future development to be of the “passive park” variety with amenities like hiking trails, picnicking, and bank fishing. Detailed plans would not be developed unless and until county commissioners approve the purchase.

To gauge public interest and evaluate input, Forsyth County staff is holding two general information drop-in sessions at the Belews Creek Fire Department located at 7675 Belews Creek Road in Belews Creek on Dec. 10 and Jan. 14,
2019, from 6-8 p.m. both evenings. An online survey will be available on Dec. 10 at
