Ceremony for new Chesterfield parkland Friday | Public Spaces
The Chesterfield County Department of Parks and Recreation, along with the Capital Region Land Conservancy, will recognize the donation of a 113-acre parcel of land to the county from the estate of Paul and Anna Atkins at a ceremony on Friday, Sept. 23, 2:30 p.m., at the Southwest Church of God, 5340 Courthouse Road.
The parcel is designated for eventual use as a county park, and contains uplands and frontage along several streams, which are protected by a riparian buffer zone. Thirty percent of the land will be developed into a park, with the remaining 70 percent protected in its forested natural state.
This event is not open to the public.
