Located along the South River in downtown Waynesboro
Open sunrise to sunset
The South River Greenway is Waynesboro’s newest park. The first phase is now complete and runs for .88 miles along the South River from the Loth Springs Parking area on Arch Avenue, behind the YMCA to the Dominion Shelter in Constitution Park.
The first phase represents the considerable effort and dedication of citizens and city staff to achieve the greater goal of connecting the South River to downtown and multiple city parks while providing additional recreational and economic development opportunities.
This phase was completed in 2011 using a combination of city funding and Federal Transportation Enhancement Grants.
The second phase of the greenway, connecting Constitution Park to North Park, is currently under development, and future phases plan to extend the greenway to Ridgeview Park, Basic Park, and eventually a series of trails connecting to the Crozet Tunnel from the old landfill.
