“Great place to make memories and it's free”
Review of Dogwood Dell

Dogwood Dell
Ranked #72 of 180 things to do in Richmond
Attraction details
Reviewed 15 June 2014

The fourth of July event I a good one and the music events can be top notch. In the past we've seen the Kings of Swing (KOS) and other really excellent bands and have had a great time. KOS gives the impression that it is all swing music, but they are an awesome band that plays all kinds of music.

Over the years, we've seen some of the plays at Dogwood Dell and enjoyed them quite a bit.

If you get lucky and the weather is good, this place, no matter what the event, can make you some very good memories.

During the day, we like to take our Dog to Barker Field, which is a big fenced area next to Dogwood Dell, where dogs of all shapes and sizes are allowed to run and play together. Your dog must be friendly and I think neutered, but our Black Lab loves his time there. Dogs are not appropriate for Dogwood Dell events, I don't think.

sorta of a bad part of town to find parking but once you do get seated, it is a fun experience. Accoustics are good. Scary walking back to your car afterwards, though.

I've been many times. I love the 4th of July fire works -- didn't go this year because of the heat but really missed being able to go.

Great chicken salad! A little bit pricey but it's worth it.

Dogwood Dell has a small amphitheater in which the city offers free concerts on weekends. There is also a dog park, play ground and walking trails. Dogwood Dell is located next to Byrd Park and Maymont Park.
