We love to bring a picnic dinner and watch all the activities from the launch dock. Swimmers, kayakers, canoers, crew teams, people fishing. Always losts going on, yet peaceful.

The park has many activities. Great walking paths. Benches placed to enjoy the scenic river. Large picnic pavilions. Bathroom facilities. During the year you might even see crew rowing practices or meets on the river. All of the facilities are free.

A quiet, peaceful, serene, scenic location -- remote enough that it was not crowded on a beautiful summer afternoon. A perfect location to let your dog run or swim if you have one. Take insect repellent!

Beautiful and convenient park along the banks of the James River in Richmond, Virginia. Park is located off State Rt. 711/Robius Rd. Great small boat put-ins. Perfect for Kayaks. Fantastic gravel trails for running a 5K or walking dogs. Very dog friendly.

This is a lovely park by the James River. Our September weekday visit was ideal as we sat on the riverbank watching folks younger than us kayaking, rowing, running and walking their dogs. There was just enough to watch without being crowded or noisy. We...More

As mentioned in previous posts here on Trip Advisor, we are new to the Midlothian area. As such we are exploring the area for nice places to visit. Since we grew up in towns on the water (Long Island Sound and Hudson River), we decided...More

My husband and I went to Robious Landing to take our kayaks out for the first time! It's a great time! We paddled upstream to the 288 bridge and floated back. It's about 2 miles from the dock to the bridge. It was a great...More
