Join us on Wednesday, August 29th to hear about the most iconic riverfront trail in the country, Elizabeth River Trail. This 10.5 mile trail stretches along Norfolk’s waterfront and includes some of the City’s most beloved treasures, including Waterside Marina, Town Point Park, The Pagoda, and Nauticus. We will meet at the pier BEHIND Nauticus. Attendees will need to walk down the path between Half Moone Center and Nauticus to get to the pier. PACE bikes will be available for those interested in riding the trail at the end of the tour. The PACE bike share app is required for use. If you do not have the app downloaded, please visit the Apple App Store and Google Play. Use promo code SOCIALCNFK for a free credit for first time users.
Special Thanks to Work Program Architects for sponsoring this event!
Parking is available at three nearby paid parking garages: Town Point Garage, West Plume Garage, or Main Street Garage.

If we were to write an essay, “My Summer Vacation,” a highlight would be attending the opening of JT’s Camp Grom on June 10. This new Virginia Beach adventure park was created especially for wounded veterans and their families, the families of fallen military heroes, and children and adults with disabilities.
This unique experience, a vision of the YMCA of South Hampton Roads and the Virginia Gentlemen Foundation, is a place for fun, healing and hope, allowing those in wheelchairs and with other special needs to engage in a full range of outdoor activities. WPA is proud and honored to have been part of the team helping to bring this idea to life.
Located on a 70-acre parcel of land on Prosperity Road, the camp includes a Welcome Center, Wellness Center, Amphitheater, Cafeteria and Tiki Café, lake with fishing pier, Adventure Ropes Course, and an Aquatic Center featuring a Splash Park and Flowrider – surfing/body boarding attraction.
WPA designed the Welcome Center and Canopy Connections, contributing more than $130,000 in pro-bono design services to the project.
The 4,000-square-foot Welcome Center houses offices for the YMCA and Virginia Gentlemen Foundation, a boardroom, reception area, first aid center, and locker rooms.
