Three Lakes Park Professional Review and Guide
"Just north of Richmond proper, the generously named Three Lakes Park is home to a trio of modest ponds and Henrico County’s premier nature center. Popular for summer barbecues and close-to-home fishing, the park offers more than a mile of trail encircling its impoundments.
Upon entering Three Lakes you will pass parking on your right, then more spaces on your left. The parking lot is bounded to the north by the observation deck (an earthen mound, not a tower) and play area, which, if you come on a warm spring weekend, will be rife with frolicking youngsters; the nature center, complete with aquarium, is located near the lot’s southeast corner."
