The City of Roswell will host a groundbreaking ceremony for Phase 5 of the City’s Riverwalk, a multi-purpose greenway that parallels the Chattahoochee River. The ceremony will take place on Thursday, March 1, at 11:30 a.m. near the Chattahoochee Nature Center (9135 Willeo Road, Roswell).
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 four phases of the Riverwalk project, which included a Riverwalk through Don White Park, Riverside Park, and Azalea Park to Willeo Road.
This fifth and final phase will extend the Riverwalk to the Gold Branch Unit of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area in Cobb County.
