Civic Association of Hollin Hills

Charles M. Goodman Park and Trail

Charles Goodman Park is named after the neighborhood's master architect and planner. The sloping, narrow 3.20 acre park runs roughly north-south from Paul Spring Road to Martha's Road, and can be accessed at either end. (The park is currently closed as erosion and replanting issues are addressed.)

One of the original areas designed as a park and deeded to the Civic Association in 1956, the park was initially known as East Stafford Park; it was renamed in 1992. 

A stormwater management project was launched in Goodman Park in 2021 to address the erosion problem that had caused deep chasms in the park. Construction ended in 2022, and the park has been replanted with thousands of native species, replacing the English ivy and other invasive species that had overrun the park

The park and trail directly border 28 home properties and is similar to Brickelmaier Park in that a riparian zone exists along its stream and it is mostly forested land following the Paul Spring Branch stream with a riparian corridor.
