Parkway Rec Day

Saturday, October 23, 2021

The National Park Service (NPS) at Colonial National Historical Park invites the community to recreate on a seven-mile section of the Colonial Parkway.

Park staff will close the Parkway to vehicle access between Hwy 199/Kingspoint and Rt. 359 at Jamestown from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. Vehicle access will continue on Jamestown Island. Free parking is available at the Jamestown Settlement (2110 Jameston Rd.) and at the NPS Visitor Center on Jamestown Island. Indoor restrooms are available at the Jamestown Visitor Center from 9 a.m. to 5 .m. daily and at the Jamestown Glasshouse.

The NPS solicited public comments about recurring, temporary closures of a seven-mile portion of the Parkway for walking, running, and biking earlier this year. After receiving an overwhelming response. park manager decided to offer safe recreational opportunities on the Parkway two to three times each year. The NPS encourages visitors and community members to recreate responsibly at all times. Whether seeking wide-open spaces or exploring historic areas, visitor should follow CDC guidance to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

The Colonial Parkway is a 23-mile scenic roadway stretching from the York River at Yorktown to the James River at Jamestown. It connects Virginia's historic triangle: Jamestown, Williamsburg, and Yorktown.
