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.

The Community Design Assistance Center (CDAC) was tasked with exploring the potential for another phase of the greenway, which would connect the first phase to Ridgeview Park, a popular destination for local residents. In addition, CDAC was asked to redesign the ball fields and parking lot at Ridgeview Park and pay particular attention to stormwater mitigation, pedestrian circulation, and tree evaluation and protection. Lastly, it was requested that CDAC explore ways of addressing a potentially dangerous intersection for greenway users at Lyndhurst Road and Arch Avenue.
