Harvey Family Memorial Bridge

Painting by Laura Loe

Hills and Heights has the story of the bridge dedication in Forest Hills Park tomorrow (Sunday):
On Sunday, September 19, people from across the city of Richmond are invited to come together in healing and celebration as they help dedicate a new pedestrian bridge named for the Harvey Family in Forest Hill Park. Beginning at 2 pm, musicians, a balloon artist, children and families will be present as city officials cut the ribbon on the bridge across Reedy Creek where it flows into the lake and Friends of Forest Hill Park unveil a granite marker nearby.
