This a small beautiful beach in the town - great for enjoying some sun after a long day of work. In the summer it has artisan festival. There is small swimming area as well.

There is a great artisan festival a few weeks during the fall. They sale home-made items and gifts. They have the BEST Kettle Corn ever! 12/9 is the next one.

Like going there when just the two of us want to sit, cook, and people watch.Never swam there, but we don't usually go to the beach to swim. Feels safe and secure. Don't forget the lakeside area. It's easy to miss.

Just like most out of door sites in this area, this city park located on the James river can depend on weather for family satisfaction. The beach is closed due to elevated bacteria levels of the water several times each summer. This is great news...More
