The James River Park is a crown jewel of the region, providing a unique natural wilderness for park users. As the number of visitors to the park increases each year, a Master Plan is needed to preserve, protect, and properly maintain the park for years to come. The plan will influence the future of the park within the overall framework of the park’s conservation easement. 
Your input is valuable to the formation of the James River Park Master Plan. Please take a few moments to complete the following 14 question survey below, to let us know your thoughts about the park now and in the future! 

Development of the Park Master Plan is made possible by the Friends of the James River Park in partnership with the Beirne Carter Foundation, The Community Foundation of Richmond, CoStar, VA Dept. of Health, Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation, NewMarket Foundation, Venture Richmond, and Mary Ann and Lou Wilson
