Friends of the James River Park in partnership with the City developed a 10-year master plan for the Park that was adopted by City Council in January.
Next year will mark 50 years since Charles Schaefer and John Keith, Jr. the donation of land that created the James River Park System. We imagine Schaefer and Keith would be proud of where the Park is today.
As we shake off the Winter cold and return to the outdoors, our local flora and fauna are also adjusting to the weather. The days are warming and growing longer, and with that come the great harbingers of Spring.
The James River is an incredible asset, and provides millions of hours of enjoyment of millions of people. It’s also a powerful body of water, and deserves our respect.
The Friends of the James River Park have launched a search for a full-time Executive Director. Do you have the same passion for the Park that we do?
The James River Park System
Owned by the City of Richmond, the JRPS is a public park in Richmond Virginia. The Friends are citizen stewards of the James River Park. We provide ongoing support for conservation, enhancement, and recreational enjoyment of the park, while protecting its natural and historic environments, in partnership with the City of Richmond Department of Parks & Recreation.
