Greater Hilton in Newport News

Greater Hilton

There is something Old World and nostalgic about this unique area of Newport News.  Full of sidewalks and green areas, there is no shortage of runners, cyclists, children at the playground, and folks walking their dogs. Greater Hilton is a very "lived" in neighborhood and it's home to Hilton Village.  It has its own Women's Club and Garden Club. The neighborhood organization hosts events that would seem long lost to the hustle and bustle of modern lifestyles. From Easter egg hunts and 4th of July parades to spring and fall festivals; Greater Hilton is the place to grow your family and create irreplaceable memories.

The Hilton Elementary area is home to a 100-year-old school with a playground on the James River. It is also home to the Hilton fishing pier, beach, and kayak launch (coming soon). The Hilton Ravine, also in this area, is a neighborhood favorite with its a walking trail and bench seating for gatherings. 

Historic Hilton Village Business District area is only a short stroll or bike ride away. There you'll find boutiques, antique stores, and a variety of retail options.  This area is also home to some of the best restaurants and bakeries on the Peninsula. The Main Street Library is also in this area, along with the Hilton Community Garden. 

On the south end of Greater Hilton, there is a walkable bridge that connects the neighborhood to Huntington Park. This 60-acre park is home to the Huntington Beach, Fort Fun playground area, Huntington Tennis Center, Peninsula YMCA, War Memorial Museum, Rose Garden, and the James River fishing pier which is nestled beside the iconic Crab Shack on the James Restaurant. 

The north end of Greater Hilton connects to Mariners' Park. This 550-acre park offers a break from city life with a quiet and serene place to walk, hike, or run amongst rolling woodlands and features the award-winning five-mile Noland Trail that surrounds the 167-acre Mariners' Lake.
