Waynesboro, located three miles from the junction of Skyline Drive, Shenandoah National Park, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and the Appalachian Trail, is a hub for outdoor recreation. In recent years, the City has made efforts to expand its outdoor appeal by creating a greenway connecting all of its major parks. The first phase of this multi-year project has been completed and is already a popular destination for residents and visitors. The second phase of design work is underway which will connect downtown to North Park.
CDAC was asked to assist the City of Waynesboro with the developement of a conceptual master plan for the next phase of the greenway, which will connect the greenway to Ridgeview Park. Related design work included parking lot and entry lane redesign at the trailhead, new signage, green infrastructure for storm water mitigation, and a picnic area. The parking area serves the ball fields and will serve as a trailhead for the future greenway extension.
