We are citizen stewards of the James River Park. We provide ongoing support for conservation, enhancement, and recreational enjoyment of the James River Park, while protecting its natural and historic environments.
Our newest ParkStar is Blue Sky Fund! They provide transformational experiences for Richmond area youth through outdoor education. The James River Park System is where they do a lot of their programming.
Know the river level before venturing into the James River. Life jackets are strongly recommended at all water levels due to swift currents, hazards, and unknown depths. River levels between 4 – 5.5ft are ideal for paddle sports, swimming, and other river recreation, while levels above 6ft are much more hazardous.
