Waynesboro Parks & Recreation to Present Park Design

Posted: Updated:

Waynesbor Parks & Recreation Press Release

Waynesboro Parks and Recreation, through a generous grant from the Virginia Department of Forestry, has  engaged the Community Design Assistance Center (CDAC) to provide conceptual design work for an eastern section  of Ridgeview Park adjacent to Cliffside Drive.

In addition the project team is studying alternate routes connecting the existing South River greenway trailhead at Loth Springs to Ridgeview Park.

The Community Design Assistance Center is affiliated with the Virginia Tech College of Architecture and Urban Studies provides undergraduate and graduate students practical experience through work on community projects. 

The project will focus on the Wayne Avenue crossing, establishing a safe and aesthetically pleasing trail route and  park improvements in the eastern portion of Ridgeview Park. Particular examination will be given to potential  impacts on existing park facilities, safe passage through parking areas, alternate trail routes, tree preservation, and  landscaping.

The greenway connection routes are conceptual in nature and no precise route has been selected. In addition no money has been appropriated to construct any new trail system in this area. A citizen information session will be  held on Thursday – September 12 beginning at 6:30 PM at City Council Chambers at 503 W. Main Street. The CDAC student team and Dwayne Jones, Director of Parks and Recreation will make the presentation and welcome community input.

If you are unable to attend but would like to discuss the project please contact the Parks and  Recreation Department at 540-942-6735.
