The newest section of the South River Greenway in Waynesboro is now open.

“The new section from Port Republic to North Park is scenic and lovely, with views of the river and mountains,” said a social media post from Visit Waynesboro. “Come out and enjoy it sometime this fall.
The South River Greenway runs along the South River in Waynesboro from the Loth Springs parking area near the Waynesboro YMCA to the Port Republic neighborhood north of downtown – and now to North Park on Bridge Avenue.
The paved trail is open to walkers, runners, pets and bikers and features historical information, birdwatching, fitness stops and more.
