Larus park is 106 acres of wooded solitude bounded by Huguenot Road, Chippenham Parkway and Stony Point Fashion Park. There’s a network of singletrack trails in Larus park, but no loop can be put together without bushwhacking. A biker or runner could probably get in 3-4 miles here, but would have to backtrack in places to see all the trail. Paths shoot off in different directions, just begging to be followed. The park is an urban explorer’s dream. For more information visit: https://www.richmondoutside.com/destination/larus-park/

Nice little park just off Chippenham. The road to the park is right between the Shell gas station and the fire station. Easy to miss but the trailhead is labeled. Trail is mainly rocks and roots with a very gradual incline on the way back up. A few benches spread out along the trail. Very well shaded.

Come to this hidden gem all the time with my Lab. She loves playing in the creek that runs through the middle of the park and its a fun and easy little hike around.

I am pretty sure that this page also has incorrect information. Dogs are allowed, even welcome, just about anywhere outdoors in Richmond as long as they are on a leash. Richmond is a very dog friendly city.
