Plans are underway to raise funds for the Hopewell Scenic Riverwalk
The Hopewell Riverwalk is an exciting new link in FOLAR’s Lower Appomattox River Blueway/Greenway Heritage Trail and is a key part of the City of Hopewell’s Riverfront Plan. It will provide a scenic riverside walkway connecting the existing pier at Hopewell’s City Park to the John Randolph Medical Center. The City of Hopewell pledges - For every $2 raised for the Hopewell Riverwalk, $1 in matching funds will be provided.
FOLAR is leading the community supported fund raising effort and will work to achieve this goal over the next twelve months through a combination of city, foundation, corporate, and individual donations. The Hopewell Riverwalk fund is an exciting venture for the Friends of the Lower Appomattox River. The thoughtful support of everyone who is served by the Appomattox River and surrounding trails, park lands, and wetlands is needed to achieve this goal.
