Things To Do

Richmond National Battlefield Park is one of more than 400 parks representing important examples of our country's natural and cultural heritage. Richmond NBP is comprised of 13 separate sub-units, each identified by distinctive brown signs, and interpreted by National Park Service historical markers.

Whenever possible, spend some time walking in each of the 13 park areas; it is the best way to understand the battlefields. Many of the sites have short self-guided trails that take you past historical features, such as earthworks and structures. Some of these resources are extremely fragile. Visitors to the park help to preserve these places for future generations by staying on the designated trails.

  • Ranger-led events

    Learn what took place in our Park and what is being done to preserve these important historical resources.

  • Museum experiences

    See artifacts telling the story of the impact which local Civil War conflicts had on both the course of the war and the people of Richmond.

  • Just for kids

    Kids can learn about the Park while completing special activities to become a certified Junior Ranger.

  • Hiking and biking

    Get up close and personal with nature on one of our many trails.
