Description:

A beautiful, clear view of Richmond is visible at all hours here, and hailed by some as the best view in town -- especially at sunset.  The James River, lush woodlands, and bustling Shockoe Bottom are all visible from this perch in a quiet corner of historic Church Hill.  It was from this spot in 1737 that wealthy landowner William Byrd named Richmond, after the city in England it closely resembles.  Lounge on a bench with coffee from nearby Captain Buzzy's Beanery, bring a picnic and spread out on the grass, or take a stroll down one of the park's cobblestone lanes.
