‘Culmination of my parents’ dream,’ Taylor Farm Park opens in Sandston

Taylor Farm Park is now open, featuring an array of nature-centered amenities, including mist mounds, an interactive play stream, an “all-wheel” park and more.

With guests overflowing a tent on the park’s event lawn on July 16, county officials celebrated Henrico’s first new park in six years and the first large community park to open in the Varina District in 42 years.

“Taylor Farm Park – all 99 acres of it – is simply extraordinary. It is carefully designed to complement and blend with nature. It really makes me wish – and many of you will feel the same way when we get to the back – that I and we were younger,” Board of Supervisors Chairman and Varina District Supervisor Tyrone Nelson told the crowd. “It's truly a place like no other. It's a place where kids and their imaginations will be able to run wild and where families and friends will be able to create memories that will last a lifetime.”
