dc.description.abstractWaynesboro, 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. Recently, the city has made efforts to expand its connection to the proposed redesign of the Crozet Tunnel. A trail from the Crozet Tunnel to Waynesboro would contribute to the expansion of the regional bicycling and hiking network, including the Appalachian Trail and U.S. Bicycle Route 76 (Blue Ridge Parkway). Waynesboro would like to expand on and connect to this feature by transforming an old landfill into a community park.

The Community Design Assistance Center (CDAC) was tasked with developing a conceptual design for an overall master plan of the landfill which shows possible connections to the Crozet Tunnel and locates a pedestrian trail that would link with proposed mountain biking trails created by a local mountain biking club. In conjunction with the overall master plan, guidelines on appropriate trail development and forest management recommendations were researched. and The possibility of adding zip lines at the top of the landfill was explored. In addition, conceptual designs were developed for the park entry and the reuse of the existing refuse public works building. The team also generated ideas for park character, including materials for entryway signage, kiosks, and trail markers.

CDAC worked closely with stakeholder representatives to develop these concepts which are discussed in further detail in the following report.
