WELCOME TO FOREST HILL PARK
Whether you enjoy fishing in our beautiful newly renovated lake, watching butterflies in our native flower garden, hiking or biking our extensive trail system, or sledding in the wintertime, our park has something to offer you.
You’re Welcome Here!
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
To preserve, protect, and promote responsible care and use of Forest Hill Park, in cooperation with the staff and leadership of the Richmond Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities, and to foster wider knowledge, respect, and understanding of one of Richmond's oldest and most precious public green-spaces.
All park and garden weekend warriors, please come to Forest Hill Park on Saturday, May 7th, to fight against the encroaching invaders that are taking our trees hostage and choking out our native plants. Come armed with garden gloves, pruners and loppers, whatever you have in your arsenal. Wear camouflage (ie, long pants and long sleeves) to outwit the stealthy Poison Ivy. We’re going to be attacking our arch enemy, English Ivy – it’s been taking over for years now and we’ve had enough!
Meet at command center, the Stone House, in Forest Hill Park at 12 noon on Saturday, May 7th. Your generals will deliver your mission and your own patch of earth will be given to you then. Stay as long or as little as you like. The mission should be accomplished by 2pm. Refreshments provided.
