Wonderful path around the old mill pond. Nice bench’s and plenty of places to sit and rest, watch or chat. Easy parking and close to the road. Nice views across the water from the walking bridges.

We walk our dog there almost every Sunday. There are a few people on bikes, parents with children, dog walkers, joggers and meanders. It’s a beautiful quiet place that all are welcome. There are several trails depending on how long you wish to be there....More

Chesterfield County in conjunction with the state and other folks have developed the first coal mines in the United State into a wonderful learning park. It's free and anyone with interest in history should visit this park.
