Very nice surburban park and a place to find history of local coal mining. Off the beaton track we found a field of blooming orchids. Please do not dig up because they never survive transplanting.
I walk to this park from an adjacent neighborhood 4-5 times per week. the park is well maintained and has a great l walking path with lots of natural wildlife around the lake. The outside amplitheatre is made of a stone with the lake as a backdrop. Concerts here are really nice - wish there were more! there are a... 更多

This is the location of the old Mid-Lothian Mines, which operated in Virginia in the 1700's and until the mid-1800's. It was the largest coal operation in the U.S. at that time and a railroad hauled the coal to the docks in Richmond.
