Right along the Appomattox River, it has a walking/biking trail, a boat dock and a picnic pavilion. The park is part of a bigger plan to create a greenway that follows the river through the city. The entire span is not finished but currently there is about 1.5 miles worth of paved walkway along the river starting in Roslyn Park.
I'm not even going to pretend that I didn't act like a kid in a candy store when I realized what we had found. I know to a lot of people a trail is nothing exciting...but then again they aren't the kind of people to plan an entire trip around hiking a trail. There is more to this story (an even larger concept for the trail) but that will have to wait. Happy hiking.
