  • In this square you will find the Richmond Capitol (very cute!!!), as well as being surrounded by other monuments, statues and buildings of majestics and lots of nature! It is a green space in the center of the city, ideal for walking and resting. Very well designed and designed.

  • Beautiful park in downtown. Easy to walk around and you can see lots of history here. We always visit this park when we are in the area. It's perfect for a nice afternoon stroll. This park is also great for large groups. We had the pleasure of watching graduates get their pictures taken this past Spring. It was Beautiful!
  • Well worth a visit - easy to walk through and interesting. Free tour of the Capitol was excellent. Only con: construction everywhere around the square, so it was hard to figure out how to get in.
