Located just west of the Manchester Bridge and built on the historic piers of the Richmond and Petersburg Railroad Bridge, BridgePark will connect people to the river, to the community, to nature and each other. Watch our video.
BridgePark will act as the centerpiece of the riverfront experience, connecting all the attractions our unique riverfront has to offer.
The twelve stone piers of the historic Richmond and Petersburg Railroad Bridge will be the park’s foundation. The original wooden trestles were burned down in 1865 by retreating Confederate soldiers but the piers remain sturdy as ever.
To fulfill this dream, we have formed the Richmond BridgePark Foundation, a nonprofit organization that is currently reaching out to individuals, corporations, community groups, and city and state officials to help create a park that enlivens our community and unites our collective vision. Join us to make this dream a reality.
