Access to the Archive

The Archive is located north and south of the White Oak Creek Greenway path between the tunnel under SW Cary Parkway [arrow #2] and the greenway exit at MacArthur Drive [arrow #3].

Parking is kindly permitted by the Taylor Family YMCA [101 YMCA Drive, Cary 27513] in its lot for those on Archive business (or pleasure). Archive visitors may also use the YMCA's restrooms.

Please park in or as near as possible to the row shown by arrow #1. Walk down the hill directly behind the parking row, cross the bridge over the creek and turn west [left] onto the greenway path. The path leads to a tunnel under Cary Parkway. When you emerge from the tunnel at arrow #2, the Archive is before you.

The hill behind the parking lot is a little steep. There is no paved ground between the lot and the greenway path. The entrance to the Archive from the other end, at MacArthur Drive [arrow #3], is a smooth transition from sidewalk to greenway path, and requires no walk over unpaved ground. However, the entranceway is in a residential neighborhood, and parking near it might be a problem.

The Town of Cary's rules and regulations for greenway use are printed here. The main ones are: no motorized vehicles; no alcohol; pets must be leashed; and use is permitted during daylight only.
