One of my “favorite places” for an amazing view was spending an October day on the Potterfield Pedestrian Bridge in Richmond, Virginia. I am lucky my son lives just a few block from the Pedestrian Bridge and the vast James River Park system. So when I go to visit, I try to take advantage of the vast trails, walkways and views all along the James River on both sides of the river.
Background on the T. Tyler Potterfield Memorial Bridge – Pedestrian & Cycling Bridge from https://jamesriverpark.org/project/tyler-potterfield-memorial-bridge/
“The long anticipated physical link between Brown’s Island and Manchester, this pedestrian and cycling pathway sits atop a former hydroelectric dam, some 20 feet above the river.
“Completed in 2016 and named for the late City of Richmond senior planner T. Tyler Potterfield, the bridge provides unequaled river vistas, panoramic views of the downtown skyline, along with sounds that belie the extraordinarily close relationship of the bridge to the roaring river.”
“The wheelchair accessible bridge is open to pedestrians and cyclists 24 hours a day.”
Enjoy the great outdoors and all that Richmond and the vast James River Park system has to offer for running, cycling, walking and enjoying the natural beauty that Richmond has to offer!
