Appomattox River Park
Appomattox River Park is actually located just outside the borders of the City of Petersburg in Dinwiddie County, along the south bank of the Appomattox River. The property was donated by Dominion Virginia Power and is now controlled by the City of Petersburg. Its 137 acres provide mostly undeveloped open wooded space containing hiking and biking trails, and access to the river for boating and fishing. The site also includes a half basketball court and a pavilion for group gatherings.
