Even in the winter it is a beautiful park to walk around. A few of the fountains were running. The statues are just beautiful. Must do when you visit the Capitol. Parking is a bit tight in this area, but worth a few block walk.

Enjoy the bit of heaven in the city surrounded by big trees, statues, and a gorgeous capital designed by Thomas Jefferson. Tours in the building are a must.

Walked around Capitol Square Park one evening. It was a really nice area. Lots of great photo opportunities. Absolutely worth a visit when in Richmond.

You can stroll around at your rhythm and take the time to visit or not the buildings in the area. This guarded park is host to a few historical buildings. According to the time you have, you can take a few minutes or spend hours. It is worth it! You can find so much in this area that it should... More

If you are looking for a peaceful place to walk then I suggest you visit the grounds of the Va. state Capitol. The gardens and statues are absolutely beautiful and so peaceful.

We came to Richmond for a NASCAR race as part of a road trip from the UK. To be honest we knew little about Richmond beforehand and once there went for a drive and found this. We were very impressed with this area. There was just the two of us here on a Sunday morning so it was peaceful and... More

I almost daily walk through over lunch enjoying the views, shade, and even some local birds that call it home! Beyond the *many* historical monuments, Capitol Building, Governor's Mansion, and other historic buildings, it's also a major spot to play Pokemon Go!!!! Lots of poke stops and varieties of pokemon. At night many locals drop lures too!

This little park is along the N 9th St. side of the Capitol Building. It runs between the formal entry to the Capitol down to Bank St. There are park benches and plenty of shade. You can set and listen to the bells from the bell tower that chime hourly that were initial used to summon the delegates. Feed the... More
