Restoring this Natural Gem in Our Community!

The Newport News Green Foundation, in partnership with the Friends of the James River at Hilton Beach, Hilton Elementary School, and the City of Newport News, seeks to revive and restore the green space areas surrounding Hilton Elementary School and the adjacent Hilton Ravine. The scope of work includes installation of a rain/learning garden, restoration of the open space area on the school playground, restoring public access to beach area, restoration of the outdoor classroom in the ravine, restoration of trees, bridges, walking path, and lighting in the ravine and installation of educational elements throughout the project that will include education on storm water, trees, birds, and other environmental elements. As the playground and ravine area are generally open for public access, this project is intended for the long term benefit of the Hilton and greater Newport News community. Phases of this project will be completed as work on projected storm water projects in the area are completed.
