Over 20 years ago a group of volunteers came together with a shared vision – and a shared love for the river valley. That vision grew into a plan of action to transform the river valley into a world-class, integrated, cross-municipality park and trail system. This history set into motion the RVA’s work today in helping municipalities fund the design and construction of projects that connect people to this natural wonder.
