Veterans Memorial Park

Veteran's Memorial Park is a relatively new park, conveniently located in the center of the City of Richmond, featuring memorials for quiet reflection but also offering a large amount of green space for family picnics. It can be reached via car from North 2nd Street (just west of the Wayne County Safety Building) or by foot via the suspension footbridge over the Whitewater River, just south of the Weir Dam on Sim Hodgins Parkway.

Did You Know?

Richmond was once known as "the lawnmower capital" because of the lawn mowers manufactured here from the late 19th century through the mid-20th century. Manufacturers included Motomower, Dille-McGuire and F&N.
