Recreation & Parks

Welcome to Henrico County Recreation & Parks!

We are pleased to offer our citizens a variety of programs and activities for all ages, including residents with special needs. From visual arts to nature and outdoors, preschool to senior adults, there is something for everyone!

Our Division also oversees the development,  construction, and maintenance of many parks, recreation facilities, athletic complexes, and historic sites throughout Henrico County.

We're celebrating 50 years of recreation & parks! 2019 marks our 50th Anniversary as a government Division. We'll be sharing content from our archives - old photos, park facts, milestones - all year long, so be sure you're following us on our social accounts!
