Grounds Connectivity

The Promenade

The UVA athletics department, working closely with the University, wishes to improve connectivity from Central Grounds to North Grounds with addition of a pedestrian promenade, a prominent feature of the Master Plan. The promenade begins at the east side of the Goodwin Bridge and continues through the Olympic Sports Center, McCue Center and practice fields before moving alongside the Palmer Park and Klöckner Stadium to connect to North Grounds. It will encourage daily activity in the athletics precinct and serve as a gathering point on game days. This walkway also creates opportunities to recognize UVA athletics legends and dedicated donors whose financial support helped to make this project a reality.

Natural Grass Practice Fields

Following completion of the McCue Center renovation and the Olympic Sports Center, the Training Grounds will be vacated and a multi-sport natural grass practice field will be added to provide an additional training location for our Olympic sports.

"The vision of making Virginia the best athletic department in the country is in front of us, and with everyone's support, we can make this a reality."
