On Monday, January 27, the James River Master Plan is being presented to Richmond City Council for its approval. This Master Plan, crafted with the input of park users from everywhere as well as each district of the City of Richmond, is a 10 year plan to protect, maintain and improve the James River Park System.
For the past six years, our friends over at Keep Virginia Beautiful have hosted the Shiver in the River, at Tredegar Street, alongside the James River.
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!
We recently got a helping hand…hoof…from a team…herd…of goats.
“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.
