This small, linear park is located near Lynchburg College, between Amelia and Breckenbridge Streets, and contains three separate picnic areas with grills, and a basketball court. A small tributary of Blackwater Creek meanders through the center of the park, with large trees providing shade.
College Park underwent master planning beginning in early fall of 2004. The process included opportunities for interested groups, City staff, and individuals to assess the strengths and weaknesses of College Park, establish goals for the future of the park and prioritize changes that should be made. A conceptual development plan was completed as part of this effort that returns the small creek back to its natural state, provides neighborhood access, walking trails, and enhanced picnic facilities as well as other improvements. The project is currently waiting for funding in the City’s Capital Improvement Program.
