Paradise Creek Nature Park provides the rare opportunity to enjoy a restored Elizabeth River – first-hand. This 40-acre, waterfront park will teach generations what it takes to bring back the health of an urban river, once presumed dead. Two miles of trails lead the visitor through an urban forest under revitalization, 11 acres of new tidal wetlands, and past industrial partners all doing their part to bring back your home river. Visit to enjoy the songbirds and waterfowl returning to this oasis of peace in an urban setting. Enjoy the new Towne Bank River Playground, frequent outdoor programs and volunteer opportunities, as well as a free kayak launch.

The non-profit Elizabeth River Project raised the funds to buy and improve the site and now operates the park’s environmental education, restoration, and volunteer programs. For more information about this organization visit:
