Long Description:
Located at the foot of Washington Street, on the James River this parking area has direct access to the trail to Percival's Island. It is also a Rails to Trail, using the former rail bridge to cross to the island. There are about 40 parking spaces.

"RiverWalk is one of the most popular sections of the James River Heritage Trail. People of all ages and abilities are able to enjoy this 3.5 mile paved trail. This lovely, level path begins downtown on Jefferson Street, just past the eastern end of the Blackwater Creek Bikeway and the Point of Honor Trail, and moves eastward along the waterfront (passing Amazement Square and Riverfront Park), and crosses onto Percival's Island before continuing into Amherst County. Recreational opportunities along this section of the James River Heritage Trail are diverse and include walking, biking, jogging, fishing, and expansive riverfront views." (visit link)
