The Wetlands is a quiet part of the James River Park System on the south bank of the river in the Stratford Hills neighborhood – attached to the much more well-known Pony Pasture Rapids Park. It features a lagoon, sandy beaches, walking trails, wildlife blinds and birdwatching. What you’d normally find in the tranquil park is bird watchers, joggers or people walking their dog. During the fall, this is a great place to see a wide variety of colorful leaves.
