Created in 1930 by Museum founder Archer Huntington, The Mariners' Museum Park is the largest privately maintained park in America. The Park is 550 acres of privately maintained, naturally wooded property that offers visitors a quiet and serene place to walk, run, or picnic. The famed Lions Bridge is a stunning Park landmark with gorgeous views of the James River, noted for its four lion statues created by the Museum founder's wife, Anna Hyatt Huntington. The 167-acre Lake Maury is an ideal location for experiencing wildlife and escaping the crowds. A seasonal boat dock allows for weekend rentals of jon boats, paddle-boats, canoes, and kayaks. Following the shoreline of Lake Maury is the five-mile Noland Trail. Dedicated as a gift from the Noland Family in 1991 and with significant ongoing financial support from the Noland Family, the trail has fourteen bridges, picnic areas, benches, handicap access, and mile markers.
