Percival's Island Natural Area

1600 Concord Turnpike
Lynchburg, VA 24504

Percival’s Island is a familiar landmark in downtown Lynchburg.  Visitors may see herons, migrating waterfowl and many native plants and animals as they follow the paved trail, which bisects the natural area.  The James River is the backdrop for any visit to the island, featuring views of both calm pools and rushing waters.

Anyone wishing to spend a quiet afternoon or quick bike ride while enjoying views of the James River will find a lovely park with many special places to explore.
