Latta Nature Preserve

This Preserve was developed from the lands of James Latta, who had his cotton plantation along the Catawba River in the 18th century. The lands have been transitioned into a recreational area for the people of Mecklenburg County.

Here’s what the Preserve has to offer…

Trails for Horse Riding
Picnic Grounds

Kayaking along the river

A Raptor Center

In taking a hike along one of the Preserve trails came across this closed facility. Believe this must be the former lands of the cotton plantation.

Oh how lucky the people of Mecklenburg are to have this Preserve

available to them.
