No word on if the new design will include the random naked dude often seen at Texas Beach.
Officially it’s called the North Bank Trail but realistically everyone just uses the Texas Beach moniker.
From Storefront Richmond in partnership with the James River Parks System:
The James River Park System is seeking assistance with the development of a conceptual plan to improve the entrance to the North Bank Trail at the terminus of Texas Avenue in the Maymont neighborhood. While many improvements have been made along this portion of the North Bank Trail to improve connectivity to Texas Beach, the entrance is currently characterized by its parking lot, which leaves little room for paths that prioritize the many runners, cyclists, hikers that move through this entrance. We are seeking a team of landscape architects to re-envision this entrance. JRPS hopes to leverage the outcome of this consultation as they seek funding to implement this project.
