Northwest River Park
Situated on 763 acres of pristine wetland and forest habitat and bordering the Northwest River, the city's most expansive park offers camping, an extensive trail system, boating, canoeing and fishing. * Boating-Paddle along the inland lake or venture onto the scenic Northwest River. Canoes, jon-boats and paddleboats are available to rent by the hour or day. * Fishing-Fish the stocked lake for bass, blue gill, crappie, catfish and trout. A Virginia freshwater license is required for anyone 16 years and older. (Licenses are not available on-site.) * Hiking-Set your own pace for a stroll along any of the park's more than seven miles of winding trails. The Marjorie Rein Memorial Walkway weaves through the Southern Terminal area of the park then bridges both a freshwater marsh and bald cyprus swamp on its way to the observation platform.
