The Historic Triangle of Jamestown, Williamsburg, and Yorktown attracts new residents from all over the country and the world. During our First Day Hike, we took note that none of our guest were natives of the area.People move here for the historic charm, college town atmosphere, and commute to military bases. We believe newcomers will enjoy knowing that they have a natural resource and outdoor adventure treasure in their own backyard, York River State Park.
The Getting To Know Us Tour is a family friendly walk highlighting the amenities and activities we offer at the park. The tour begins at our picnic shelters and playgrounds, a great place for reunions and company outings. Then our guest will be led through our native plant arboretum down to the canoe and kayak launch. The area around the visitor's center has a gazebo that overlooks the confluence of Taskinas Creek and the York River, an amphitheater, and a view of the riverthat looksdown on an osprey nesting platform. The tour ends with a visit to the river accessarea and Woodstock pond.We believe new residents and visitors will feel right at home in our park.
Come and walk with us on Sunday, January 22, February 5 and 12, March 4, April 15, and the first Sunday of each month for the rest of 2012.
