A Day on the Water

Sometimes it seems as if stakeholders lose sight of the asset they’ve pledged to protect. In the case of the James River Park System, it’s kind of hard to miss. One of America’s largest urban parks courses through the heart of our city.

On Saturday, July 10th, a dynamic group of stakeholders took to the water to see the beauty of our beloved Park first-hand. Not a bad day at the office. Mayor Levar Stoney manned the oars of one of the boats that day. As we continue to work on the implementation of our Park’s Master Plan, he hopefully left that day with a renewed appreciation for the value of the James River Park System.

He got a copy of Bill Draper’s “A Photographic Journey through the James River Park System” as a reminder!
