L VE OUR OUTDOOR LIFE Enjoy the outdoors here! We sit along the Appomattox & James Rivers; Lake Chesdin is between Dinwiddie and Chesterfield Counties. Trails take you through the woods, along the rivers, and through our history. The Appomattox River Trail will soon be 22+ continuous miles. Along the Appomattox there are 10 parks, a conservation area and marinas, so come with your boat, canoe or kayak, and bring your fishing pole. The James River brought settlers here originally and more parks, trails, and conservation areas are waiting. Visit Hopewell’s City Point and absorb the beauty of the confluence of our two rivers! Paddle Battle Whether you’re out on the Appomattox River for a slow, relaxing float in the summer sun or your heart is set on winning, Friends of the Lower Appomattox River’s annual Paddle Battle event is for you! Bring your canoe or kayak out to the race or just enjoy the calm water, historic sites, and beautiful scenery! www.folar-va.org 12 CHESTERFIELD COUNTY • COLONIAL HEIGHTS • DINWIDDIE COUNTY • HOPEWELL • PETERSBURG • PRINCE GEORGE COUNTY
