Roswell has officially opened Phase 4 of the Riverwalk, a multi-purpose greenway that runs along the Chattahoochee River.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony took place recently at the Chattahoochee Nature Center. The fourth phase of the walk adds about one mile to the greenway, starting at Azalea drive and extending to the Nature Center. Prior phases of the walk took it through Don White, Riverside and Azalea parks.
Earlier this month, the City Council approved a $125,800 contract for design services for the fifth and final phase of the Riverwalk. AEC Inc. is tasked with landscape architecture, engineering and other services for an extension of the Riverwalk boardwalk from the Nature Center to the Gold Branch Unit of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area in Cobb County.
The Riverwalk project dates to 2000, when Roswell residents approved a bond referendum that included funds to construct a seven-mile greenway along the Chattahoochee with parks, trails and other recreational and educational facilities.
