If you have ever been to the Pipeline Rapids Walkway in spring and early summer, the Great Blue Heron rookery is amazing. It is a great example of the health of the James River in downtown Richmond and a fantastic place to watch the beauty of nature year-round. But some have complained that it needs fewer people visiting, not more. There is a proposal in the 2007 Downtown Master Plan that would have a boardwalk build beneath the double-track CSX viaduct to replace the existing narrow metal catwalk. Should there be more access to this area or is the current structure enough? Should the area remain one of downtown Richmond’s best kept secrets?
