The cross section of the process e^+e^-\to \pi^+\pi^- was measured in the spherical neutral detector experiment at the VEPP-2M collider in the energy region 400<\sqrt{s}<1000 MeV. This measurement was based on about 12.4 • 106 selected collinear events, which include 7.4• 106 e^+e^-\to e^+e^-, 4.5• 106 e^+e^-\to\pi^+\pi^-, and 0.5• 106 e^+e^-\to\mu^+\mu^- selected events. The systematic uncertainty of the cross section determination is 1.3 %. The ρ-meson parameters were determined as m_\rho=774.9\pm 0.4\pm 0.5 MeV, \Gamma_\rho=146.5\pm 0.8\pm 1.5 MeV, and \sigma(\rho\to\pi^+\pi^-)=1220\pm 7\pm 16 nb and the parameters of the G-parity suppressed decay \omega\to\pi^+\pi^- as \sigma(\omega\to\pi^+\pi^-)=29.9\pm 1.4\pm 1.0 nb and \phi_{\rho\omega} = 113.5\pm 1.3\pm 1.7 degree.
