Pedal Boat ridesRichmond Parks and Rec wants you to “make it a family tradition, and take a pedal boat ride on Byrd Park’s Fountain Lake. It’s a Richmond experience you don’t want to miss, and something Richmond adults remember from their own childhood and now want to share with their children.”

The pedal boat rides are now open every day from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and cost just $12 for half an hour.

In addition, Croaker’s Spot Express has taken over the concession at The Landing at Fountain Lake. They are offering a variety of seafood and other dinner plates and sandwiches, as well as kids’ meals and ice cream. Check out their website at for more information on their menu. You can also call your order in ahead at (804) 353-1717 for pick up or a picnic to take to one of the upcoming outdoor performances at Dogwood Dell.
