This is a great park! A nice large playground for children to enjoy with picnic tables. There are three nature trails which all together add up to about 1.5 miles if you walk around all of them. I took a few loops and got in a great workout! There are 3 ponds, 1 of them allows for fishing and also has a picnic area with a gazebo and benches. The middle pond is full of turtles. It's fun to see them swimming around!

This is an all time favorite place of mine to go and reflect. It's quiet and the scenery is just gorgeous. Now the trees are bright yellow, red and orange and the view of the James River running through Richmond is a treasure. My hometown and I love it! Libby Hill offers an amazing view of the city and the James. With benches to sit and people watch, and walk ways to enjoy a stroll with your loved one or fur baby.

This is an awesome park. When I used to live nearby, my dog and I would walk into the park through one of the back trails. I like how this park has some overgrown portions as well as the manicured traditional park look. It's almost like two parks in one. The ponds here are very relaxing to walk around and there never seems to be overcrowding here.
