The GreenSpace concept plan will honor the past and preserve our historic Presbyterian Homes Campus in Lynchburg. Help us conserve the landscape to continue our mission serving individuals, families and communities through care, counseling and education.

By conserving our historic property we will also honor the historic neighborhood, the community and the experience of all our guests. This GreenSpace concept overall provides areas to facilitate physical activity and relaxation and form a refuge from noise — we have the land, gardens, trails, pond, open space and opportunities for people to connect.

Through a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) process, we are proposing to move & replace our pool that is more than 70 years old (also making it accessible and ADA compliant), formalize two (2) playing fields and add needed parking (fewer than 150 spaces).

Our Vision is to conserve this beautiful historic campus for healthy, healing, safe and fun activities for the neighborhood, the community and the thousands of children and families we serve. Our commitment is be good stewards of this land and to live out our Mission that will be strengthened by preserving space for children and families.
