The City of Richmond would like to help make Downtown "Merry and Bright" If you, your business, or special interest group are interested in sponsoring new lighting for Downtown Richmond, please click on a picture above to email the Parks Department for availability.
“The park should, as far as possible, complement the town. Openness is the one thing you cannot get in buildings . . . the beauty of the park should be the other. It should be the beauty of the fields, the meadow, the prairie, of the green pastures, and the still waters. What we want to gain is tranquility and rest to the mind."
Frederick Law Olmsted, “Public Parks and the Enlargement of Towns” February 25, 1870
