Beautiful Short Film Celebrates Richmond’s Urban Wilderness

I thought it was worth highlighting this incredible short video from local filmmaker Melissa Lesh about the James River Park. As Lesh writes in notes accompanying the video, “The James River Park is the beating heart of Richmond, Virginia — the James River, it’s liquid lifeline.”

If you love the outdoors — heck, even if you don’t (or don’t yet realize you do) — this video will give you a fresh appreciation for the James River, the James River Park and what they mean to Richmond’s identity.

(The film was made possible by Ralph White, Anne Wright and Jon Baliles.)


About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
