Ridgeview Park parking lot closed for construction of bio filters

waynesboro2editsThe City of Waynesboro is working on part 2 of the “Restoring Waynesboro’s Riverfront Parks” initiative with an exciting project at Ridgeview Park.

A portion of the parking lot will be converted into bio filters to clean pollutants before they reach the South River. In addition pavement and concrete will be removed along the river’s edge and replaced by grass and plantings to further filter storm water runoff. The project is funded by a $163,875 grant from American Rivers and the Environmental Protection Agency and is part of a comprehensive initiative to restore habitat and improve the health of the South River.

The construction of the new parking lot will last approximately 60 days and is scheduled to begin on August 25. Parking will be limited to the parking lot in front of the pool. An overflow parking lot will be located in the grass adjacent to the pool. Please park in designated areas only during the construction phase. A pedestrian pathway will be established to gain access to the walk bridge, restrooms and playground. For your safety please stay out of the construction zone.
