Go For a River Walk
Riverwalk Phase 4 OpensThe City of Roswell recently celebrated the opening of Phase 4 of the City’s Riverwalk, a multi-purpose greenway that parallels the Chattahoochee River.
The Riverwalk project dates back to 2000, when the residents of Roswell approved a bond referendum that included funding for the City to construct a seven-mile greenway along the Chattahoochee River that would incorporate parks, trails, and other recreational and educational facilities. Since that time, the City has completed the first three phases of the Riverwalk project, which included a Riverwalk through Don White Park, Riverside Park, and Azalea Park to Willeo Road.
This fourth phase adds approximately one mile to the greenway, which runs parallel to the river, starting along Azalea Drive, just at the point where the road curves off the river, and extending to the Chattahoochee Nature Center.
Another phase—Phase 5—is still to be built in the future and will extend the Riverwalk to the Gold Branch Unit of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area in Cobb County.
