Richmond - Central Richmond - Three Parks
Sun, January 2, 2022
We'll see 3 very unique parks in the heart of Richmond. Paulik Park is quite small (6 acres) but interesting, (make sure you see the “House of Roots” sculpture) Garden City Community Park is large (24 acres) all planned to create the great outdoors in the city. Lagoons for water storage and habitat for water fowl, many different tree specimens all labeled so we know what they are, and watch for the rabbits. The last park “ Garden City Lands” (136 acres) we walk through is in the development stage. Future work to complete the park consists of boardwalks and lookouts, an extensive trail system through the site, a community hub with gardens and spaces for events and festivals, public art and other cultural landscape elements, and an eight-acre “rise” mound at the northeast corner of the site with seating and picnicking, pathways, open grass meadow areas, and fruit and woodlot trees. How interesting- each time we walk here - NEW things to see. This is one of 8 walks in our “Explore Richmond” series.
