The Bay Trail in Richmond is enriched by a wonderful variety of exhibit panels and sculptures telling fascinating stories about the varied history of Richmond’s shoreline and interpreting its tidal wetlands, wildlife and offshore islands.

As one Bay Trail user emailed TRAC:
    “The panels add important value to the experience of people who use the Bay Trail and shoreline parks. I notice a lot of people looking at them. Plus, I enjoy them myself, even though I've been around here for a long time. The panels help put the whole shoreline experience and our area into a context the users would probably never know about otherwise.”

Explore the following sections of the Bay Trail to learn about the rich cultural and natural history of Richmond’s shoreline.
