My ‘Wish List’ for James River Park System


Pipeline Rapids walkway in downtown RichmondI love the James River and spend a lot of my free time kayaking, swimming, biking and hiking wherever I can in Richmond.

I am also dedicated to several  volunteer groups that help clean, maintain and restore some of the river’s best features.

Many people in those groups have a good sense of the best ways we can improve the way we utilize the river and its resources — and ways to make those visions a reality.

The James River Park System is now protected by a conservation easement that limits development, but that doesn’t stop us from developing new ways to enjoy ourselves when we visit.

Richmond.com published Part I of a Top 10 Wish List of the things I’d love to see happen in our treasured park system.

  1. I’d like to see the canal open to boats for an opposite reason: I don’t like rapids and would like to be able to get around them. Let’s open the canal to two-way traffic!
