A Richmond family favorite for years, Byrd Park provides fun for all ages and hosts a variety of special events throughout the year.
Beautifully landscaped on gently rolling terrain, the park features tree-shaded lawns, three man-made lakes, tennis courts, and ball fields.
The Carillon bell tower, a World War I memorial, is a Richmond fixture used for festivals, meetings, and wedding receptions, and Dogwood Dell outdoor ampitheatre hosts free concerts and plays on summer evenings.
Kids love feeding the friendly birds on Swan Lake, fishing for trout in Shields Lake, and rental paddleboat rides on Fountain Lake.
A cold winter provides opportunities for sledding down Reservoir Hill and skating on the lakes.
