You will get one of the best views of the city from this place. Really nice place for a evening stroll or to watch a fantastic sunset behind the city skyline.

One evening we were sightseeing and stopped at the park. I had seen it from below and wound up at the top of the hill. The view is grand. You can imagine Richmond as it was, and what it has become.

A very pretty neighborhood with an excellent view. There is ample street parking at the top of the hill. The park is not very large, yet you do get a wonderful view of the James River as well as downtown Richmond.
