AROUND RICHMOND, WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE?
Lynn Hunsicker (Accounting): “ I spend a lot of my weekends, when weather permits, working in my yard. This past weekend my family and I visited Maymont Park, which I hadn’t been to in quite some time. I had forgotten how pretty the Japanese gardens were. Remembering all of the beautiful Koi in their pond, we took Koi food to feed them, which delighted all of the kids there to see them feed. This park is a great place to go to relax on a blanket, walk the many paths which offer great exercise, and enjoy the flowers, and best of all it’s free! When times were normal and all businesses were open nothing beats a stroll through Carytown. “For the Love of Chocolate” is a must stop! I love eating at any restaurant that offers outside dining. It’s something about the outside and fresh air that makes the food taste so much
Paul Valdez (Valet): “ In my neighborhood, Randolph, there are a series of historical Richmond cemeteries. My favorite one to walk through is the Riverview Cemetery because it's the biggest and only a few blocks from my house. This is one of the quietest places in the whole city and is the perfect place to walk my dog, Leroy. I'm trying to train him to be a better walker which can be hard in a busy neighborhood full of traffic, squirrels, and other dogs (he's adopted). The best part of this walk is that the furthest edge of the cemetery empties into the North Riverbank Trail, a popular place for bikers and runners, and it borders Oregon Hill, Randolph, Texas Beach, and Maymont. On top of that, you are rewarded with a spectacular view of the James River. It can also be fun to read names on tombstones and get snippets of historical information from some of the people who built this city that we are so lucky to inhabit.
Sydney Place ( Cool Springs Café): “ I love going to Belle Isle when the weather is nice. It’s a great place to go for a walk, sunbathe, and even have a p icnic! It’s a great way to escape from the city every once in a while”
