Glass walls bring in natural light and a view of the landscape as visitors are welcomed to the Anne Springs Close Greenway in Fort Mill.

The new Greenway Gateway, a welcome center at the Lake Haigler entrance, will introduce visitors to the 2,100-acre nature preserve’s historic buildings and 36 miles of hiking, horseback riding and biking trails, said Elizabeth Bowers, spokesperson for the Greenway.

“Our new facility will serve as a gateway to nature, a launching point for outdoor adventures on the Greenway,” Darrell Williams, chair of the Greenway board of managers, said in a prepared statement.

“It’s a welcome center to provide information and orientation for first-time visitors, and also a place where members and visitors can gather to relax and enjoy amenities before or after their activities on the Greenway,” he said.
