Area looks very run down. Sad to see that this are is not set up for visitors and not kept up. The city has areas that are very depressed. The industrial area around the river distracts from the beauty of Richmond.

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.
