Belle Isle 11/8/2005

Belle Isle is a nice place to take a long walk and see unexpected things. The long bridge goes under the highway connecting to the island. The island has some abandoned buildings and an old quarry hole. There are walking trails and areas to mountain bike. You could walk miles around the island for a great work out. more

Great Place to Spend a Sunny Day! 9/24/2005

Belle Isle is a beautiful park to go to. It is the last thing you would expect to find in the middle of the city of Richmond. You walk across a pedestrian bridge and can follow a trail all the way around the island. Along the way you can stop and hang out on the rocks along the James River, pack a picnic lunch, bring your dog (on a leash, of course!), and maybe even take a swim in the river if the water isn't too high. There are also some bike trails, although I have never used them personally. It can be a little crowded on a summer weekend, but it is a beautiful (and free!) way to spend a day! more

Nice get away from the city life 9/3/2005

Belle Isle is an island on the James River in downtown Richmond. You must walk over the pedestrian bridge suspended under the Lee Bridge (this was a little scary to me!). The island is the site of a notorious Civil War prison and the remains of a historic iron foundry are still visible. Kayaking and canoing being popular sports around the island and there is a raft company that departs from here for trips.You can see people fishing or just playing around on the rocks that line the shore. You can even play in the water some. We walked around the trail (many people were biking or jogging past us). We even picnicked. It was a nice get away from the city life with nice views of Richmond up on the hill. more
