A conversation with Fulton’s Carl Otto left me reeling from his idea of what could be something very cool in the East End.
Mr.Otto shared the idea of a connected greenway that spans the East End. Not very clear from the street, satellite photos make apparent a continuous greenspace from Oakwood and Evergreen Cemeteries to Briel Street, around or across the East End Landfill, through to Gillie’s Creek Park, connecting to the bottom of Chimborazo Park and on to the river. Already in varied use, imagine this stretch with bike and walking paths looping from Richmond Road down to the James River and connecting to the Virginia Capital Trail and the existing network of bike trails in the city.
