This expansive 30-acre park offers a 180' view of the city. It is also home to the National Battlefield Park headquarters and one of Richmond's most unique statues, a miniature of the Statue of Liberty.
The park house on the eastern edge of the park can be rented for small meetings or events, and the popular Church Hill Dog Park is located on the eastern lower terrace of the park. The Dog Park includes two areas: one for large dogs and one for small dogs.
The Chimborazo Playground, located just one block from the park, was renovated in 2009. It also includes a community garden.
The park is open from sunrise to sunset. No alcoholic beverages, glass containers or unleashed pets are allowed in city parks.
