recreation & fun

Lynchburg is a place where families flourish when it comes to recreation. From our expansive offerings outdoors to our innovative spots around the City, you will never have a dull day in the Hill City. Take your children downtown and visit Amazement Square or partake in Lynchburg’s community and visit the Lynchburg Community Market. Runners, bikers and swimmers alike are never at a loss for paths and waterways in which to hone their skills, while parents can find a park or playground at nearly every turn.
