The Huntington family established the Mariners’ Park in 1930 for our community—for you. The Noland Family built the Noland Trail in Mariners’ Park as a gift for our community —for you. Today, The Mariners’ Museum and Park is proud—and honored—to own and operate the Mariners’ Park and the Noland Trail for you.
Each year, thousands upon thousands of people from all over our community run or walk on the Noland Trail, spend time with their family at Harvey Field, take photos and create memories on the bank of the James River and Lions Bridge, or celebrate with us at a special event in the Park. Perhaps you are one of those people.
On this #GivingTuesday, November 28, 2017, we will rally as a community to reach 1,000 donations of $10 to support the maintenance of this community jewel. Together, we can accomplish our goal, and so much more!
We connect people to the world’s waters because that’s how we’re connected to one another. Few treasures do that as well for us as the beautiful forest, fields, and wildlife in Mariners’ Park around Lake Maury and the James River. The Mariners’ Museum and Park has the honor to protect this special place, your place. We work to inspire the next generation of stewards of our treasured wildlife and to connect all people to nature and to one another.
We want you to feel like this Park belongs to you. Help us ensure that this remarkable urban oasis continues to be a free community resource for another 80 years, and beyond.
As inspiration, we are sharing #NolandTrail Instagram photos you have shared with us.
Your photos, your memories.
