Join Us for the Winter Solstice!

We hope that you’ll join us for OUR celebration on the 21st, when we’ll begin to gather at 4:30 PM at Belle Isle. There will be a traditional bonfire, snacks and hot drinks, and plenty of songs. Bring your singing voice or instrument so that you can join in!

“Urban River Ambassadors” are area high school students who work with the staff of the Park to learn about our local national resources and then pass these lessons on to other middle-school aged kids. The Park lucked out when they found Trevon Lewis and Evan Watkins.

Penelope Davenport is a James River ParkStar
