The First Creek Greenway is currently divided into two sections. Future plans call for a connection under the interstate to link the upper section of the greenway in First Creek Park to the lower section in Caswell Park. The Caswell Park section circumvents the Ashley Nicole Playground, its beautiful gardens and lush open space. The linear greenway runs a one-way course of 0.9 miles while the inner loop around the park is 0.23 miles. The First Creek Park section winds alongside First Creek and features a small loop trail in the bend of the creek near the middle of the park. This 0.5 mile linear section of the greenway links First Creek Park with the Broadway Avenue sidewalk system.
