Tuckahoe Creek Corridor
- The Tuckahoe Creek boardwalk system provides pedestrian access to the Tuckahoe Creek flood plain for walking, fishing, and enjoying nature.
- Henrico County owns 240 acres of floodplain along Tuckahoe Creek. This land is comprised of several non-contiguous parcels that stretch from just south of Broad Street to just south of Patterson Avenue.
- Henrico County voters approved $5,000,000 in capital funding for development of the entire Tuckahoe Creek Park system in November 2016.
- This bond referendum funding was appropriated in July of 2021 and is being used to expand the initial phases (described below) into a community-level passive park resource with designated parking and better access from multiple communities within nearby neighborhoods.
Phase I & II Boardwalk Trail (Complete)
- 2016: Phase I completed, which included 500 feet of boardwalk and a neighborhood pedestrian access at the terminus of Ridgefield Parkway.
- 2020: Phase II completed, which provided an additional 1,000+ linear feet of boardwalk and trail connecting the end of Phase I to Old Coach Lane.
- Phase II completed a neighborhood pedestrian link from Ridgefield Parkway to Old Coach Lane.
- Funding was provided through multiple Recreational Trails Access grants administered through the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation. The grants totaled $938,535.
- The next phase in the planning process is to complete a full master plan depicting the most practical land-use options for the entire 240-acres of land along Tuckahoe Creek. This land is comprised of several non-contiguous parcels that stretch across Three Chopt and Tuckahoe Magisterial Districts, from just south of Broad Street to just below Patterson Avenue
- The county is actively working to acquire missing segments of land to provide continuous access across this entire section of Tuckahoe Creek.
- A community master plan process to discuss plans for the entire corridor will begin this summer and will include community input through meetings facilitated by the Division of Recreation and Parks.
- Future construction will occur in multiple phases.
