Take Survey to Shape Future of James River Park

Did you know the Friends of the James River Park and the City of Richmond are working on a huge new master plan that will guide the park’s usage and development for decades? Well, they are. And they need as much public input as possible.

From their website: The Master Plan will help maintain the quality of the experience for Park users, protect the health of the river and wildlife, and preserve its natural beauty for generations to come. It will prioritize Park improvements for highest and best use for the City and region, focusing on neighborhood and community connections to JRPS. The Friends of James River Park and the City Of Richmond’s Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities Department will use this document as a road map to work with all vested individuals, public and private organizations to implement this long-term community vision.

Whether you’re a regular, sometimes or infrequent park user, the Friends and the city want to hear from you. Click here to take the short survey.

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?
