City of Roanoke’s Elmwood Park is Southwest Virginia’s premier concert and festival venue. Renovations were completed in 2014 and the new Elmwood Park is a great addition to Downtown Roanoke!
Elmwood Park features a 4,000+ capacity amphitheater with cascading grass terraces for seating, a state-of-the-art illuminated fountain in front of the stage, tree-lined walkway with decorative fountains, and an art walk with beautiful sculptures.
The stage fountains are kid friendly (just bring a towel to dry your little ones off). Fountains are on during park hours (11am – 11pm) except on days when there are events in the Park. On event days, the fountains will not be turned on. View a list of Elmwood Park events.
Completed in May 2015, the Peter Pan Playground is a joint venture between Roanoke Parks and Recreation, the Library and Carilion Clinic Children’s Hospital.
The playground is adjacent to the Downtown Roanoke Main Library located at 706 South Jefferson St and sits at the top of Elmwood Park. You can reach the playground by following the path to the right of the library off of Jefferson St.
The Peter Pan Playground has no official hours and remains open for your little ones to enjoy. Watch this video to see the playground in action!
