Final plan report

Maps:   Entire Stream Valley     Greenbrier Park    Michie Drive Field     Meadowcreek Gardens

This plan will be implemented in stages beginning in the fall of 2014. Council has allocated $150,000 to build the two bridges and begin trail work. There is a budget request for $150,000 for next year to continue the trail work and install the playground.


Originally acquired in 1963 as a park, Meadowcreek has since evolved into a set of 73 garden plots where residents can rent space to grow flowers and vegetables.  The remainder of the 20 acre park has been left undeveloped.  The gardens are located off Morton Drive near the intersection of Emmet Street and U.S. 250 Bypass behind the English Inn.  Meadow Creek meanders through the woods along the entire southeastern portion of the park. The Rivanna Trail system runs through this park.

For information on renting a plot, call (434) 970-3592.
