Whether you are new to the area, plan on relocating, or currently reside here, Richmond and its surrounding counties offer a variety of refreshing escapes.  This past weekend, my family and I visited Deep Run Park, which is located in West Henrico.  This park features a wonderful array of walking trails that merge and veer in exciting directions.  Some of these trails are level and, for those who really love a good workout, there are also trails with a nice incline (a great workout for the thigh and calf muscles).

In the midst of these trails, are fountains, lakes, a basketball court, several playgrounds, a picnic area, and a facility that some enjoy reserving for special occasions.  There are a few nice sized fields that some use to play football, Frisbee, or, simply, to just lay back on a towel and be bathed in sunlight.  Whether walking to clear or rejuvenate your mind and spirit, connect with a loved one, or solidify your bond with family and friends, this park – and countless other parks in our area – gives you an opportunity to do all of this and so much more.  If you have never visited one of our parks or have not done so in a while, don’t miss another moment to immerse yourself in nature’s beauty and be reminded of why Richmond is just so easy to love.
