Site CAP04: Parker's Battery/Battery Dantzler Park

Description

This park is located across the slough from Dutch Gap. A trail provides access to the woodlands along James River where at least five species of woodpecker breed. Listen for the calls of pileated, red-bellied, downy, hairy, and red-headed woodpeckers and look high in the canopy for American redstarts, black-and-white warblers and red-eyed vireos.

Directions

From Henricus Park, return to SR 10/Hundred Street at Old Stage Road and travel east on SR 10 for 0.2 miles to Bermuda Triangle. Continue 0.4 miles and turn left on Battery Dantzler Road. The park entrance is on the right.
