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.
A couple of weeks ago we gave you a brief introduction to Josh Stutz, our first ever Executive Director. He’s now on the job, and as our newest ParkStar, is featured in this video.
On Saturday, July 10th, a dynamic group of stakeholders and Mayor Stoney took to the water to see the beauty of our beloved Park first-hand. Not a bad day at the office.
Our friends at Friends of Pump House put together this fantastic video that shows off the Pump House and teaches you about its history.
We’re excited to announce that Joshua Stutz has accepted our offer to become the first Executive Director of the Friends of the James River Park!
