Swan Lake

Swan Lake is located in Byrd Park, which is owned and operated by The City of Richmond. Byrd Park is located on Boulevard Avenue in downtown Richmond. This beautiful 13-acre lake is one of the main attractions at this park. Although no boats are allowed, the entire shoreline is accessible to anglers. There are picnic and handicap facilities available year-round. The Park contains two other nearby lakes, Fountain (Boat) Lake and Shields Lake. Channel catfish are stocked annually, and the lake also contains reproducing populations of largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie, yellow perch, and brown bullheads.
