Great park!!!

Park was very spacious with a great playground for kids, and some very well maintained picnic areas. There is plenty to do from fishing to hiking.

Young kids especially elementary school goers will love this education center. Informative and interesting. Exhibits are clearly documented and arranged. The park has a huge play area with lots of activities for kids. Lake trial / fishing are quite engaging for couples and adults. For photo enthusiasts scenic lake shore is inspiring during spring / fall seasons.

I work in another state as an environmental educator. I'm very glad I checked out this place while I was in the area... it was quite wonderful. The exhibits are very attractive and informative, with lots of attention to detail. Their wide variety of live native turtles especially impressed me. Everything was very clean. To top it off, admission is... More

This is a small "park". There is a stocked pond for fishing, swings and a walking trail. There is a small aquarium, good for small children. Anyone over 10 will be bored!

One of Henrico County's gem of a park. It features the only aquarium in the area and offers beautiful walks around the lakes.

I walk around these lakes in all seasons. The paths are well-maintained and there's also a playground for toddlers. The nature center is very well designed with a glass-walled aquarium at eye level with the center lake. There are several interesting exhibits, helpful guides, clean restrooms and a water fountain.

Great little place to visit. Plenty of paths to walk along, however, be careful because some are quite tiny with limited space. All the lakes within this small park are a wonderful place to take a break for an afternoon. Other than a large jungle gym for the kids to play on there is also a small nature museum, which... More
