GREAT CITY WALKS
Great City Walks is an urban walking guide of trails in the City of Williamsburg, Virginia. Adopted in 2006 as one of the city’s many Jamestown 2007 Community Projects, the guide provides an opportunity for citizens and guests to explore our historic city by foot. The guide - created by the City Manager’s Office, the Parks and Recreation Department, and the GIS staff - includes seven trails which highlight interesting and historic sites in the city.
With the Williamsburg Wayfinder application, individuals can submit a service request or search for answers to common City questions in the knowledgebase library. This application also provides dynamic information for the Community, Businesses and Visitors in Williamsburg. Some highlights include: Shop & Dine to locate City of Williamsburg shops, restaurants, and landmarks, Great City Walks for GPS guided maps of local walking trails, and City Facilities and Parks to locate city facilities, rental locations and recreational activities.
Residents and visitors can download the free mobile app to access the Williamsburg Wayfinder while they’re on the go and continually have access to the great, historic City of Williamsburg!
