The Riverwalk on the Dan may define the City of Danville for the 21st century. Historically, the Dan River was used as a catalyst for industry. Now, the river's value rests in its natural beauty and recreational opportunities. With the ability to lure walkers, bikers and moms with strollers through parks, historic sites and businesses, this trail along the Dan River links our past to our future.
| You can connect at Dan Daniel Memorial Park and Anglers Parks, the Carrington Pavilion, the Danville Science Center and historic downtown Danville. The Riverwalk is truly one successful path to the vision adopted by Danville.
The Riverwalk and mountain bike trail systems host a myriad of trail events to include bike races, trail runs, charity walks, marathons, canine events and environmental education activities as well as park special events.
For more information on holding an event on the Riverwalk, view our trail event application.
There are many plans for future development of the Riverwalk as well as adoption and support opportunities. For more information, contact Outdoor Recreation at 799-5215.
