Find the Fun
There is so much to do this summer. Luckily, we have a guide that highlights the events you should check out! Look through our Summer 2016 Summer Recreation Guide.

Your Event in the Park
We have enclosed and open-air shelters throughout Richmond. Look though our Shelter Rentals and find the perfect place to hold your next party, family reunion, or other event!

Get Involved
We have many programs and services for people of all ages. Learn more about them and get registered!

Support the Parks
We need help pulling off so many great free programs for you and your family to enjoy! How about helping us out at one of them? Become a Friend of the Park, sponsor an event or volunteer to help! We're always looking for more businesses and people to contribute to our programs.
