History Hounds Explore Richmond and the James River

September 13 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Dogs are invited to join their owners for this walking tour along the James River Floodwall, Tyler Potterfield Bridge and Canal Walk, presented in partnership with the Richmond SPCA.

Richmond is a river city. The mighty James River runs through the heart of Richmond. From the pre-colonial times of the Powhatan Indians, George Washington’s dream of a canal system that reached the Mississippi, to today’s urban playground, the river has shaped the lives of generations of Richmonders. Join Richmond’s most experienced guides to explore the river, its industries, sorrows and stories on a Floodwall walk through downtown.

Dogs must have current shots, mix well with others and remain leashed. Owners are responsible for water and cleaning up after their dogs.
