We are a group of volunteers who enjoy and appreciate Forest Hill Park and all it has to offer. Our goals include preserving the park’s amenities by encouraging and demonstrating sensible management and enhancing the park area with projects such as invasive plant removal and erosion control. Forest Hill Park is a jewel, one of the oldest and loveliest open areas in Richmond, and we want it to remain so for many generations to come.
