Video: Restoring Access to the Rivanna River

This video was posted to PEC’s Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube accounts on 4/16/21.

To help the public safely access the Rivanna River, PEC teamed up with the City of Charlottesville Parks and Recreation, Rivanna Conservation Alliance, and Rivanna River Co to update the boat landing at Riverview Park!

The landing was badly damaged by flooding in 2020 and 2021. Now visitors will be able to safely access the river to swim and boat as the warm weather arrives! This is also just in time for the Rivanna River Company’s first rental day of the season on Saturday.

The need for public access to parks, green spaces and water has never been more important. Learn more about our work to ensure that all communities have access to the outdoors.
