Nature & Science
Richmond National Battlefield Park consists of over 1,400 acres divided among eleven separate park units within the City of Richmond, and three surrounding counties (Henrico, Hanover and Chesterfield). These units fall within the coastal plain of Virginia and are bounded by the James and Chickahominy River watersheds. Although the park is primarily known for its cultural resources, visitors are encouraged to recognize the importance of natural resources as well. The park strives to enhance the overall experience of the visitors, and protection of the flora and fauna is an integral part of this effort.
