In-person and virtual options available for Dec. 14, 2023, meeting
RICHMOND – The Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation is preparing a master plan for Machicomoco State Park and the neighboring Middle Peninsula unit in Gloucester County, Virginia. A public information meeting will be held Dec. 14 from 6 – 8 p.m. at T.C. Walker Education Center Auditorium located at 6099 T.C. Walker Rd. in Gloucester.
There will be a virtual option available and interested members of the public can register here or by visiting the master plan website at https://www.dcr.virginia.gov/recreational-planning/ma-masterplan.
The purpose of a master plan is to guide the management and development of a park by identifying natural, cultural and physical resources as well as identifying park needs and engaging with the public.
Supporting the recreational needs of the community requires the community’s input. Attendees will have the opportunity to give feedback during a portion of the meeting.
Machicomoco State Park is located along the York River and is closely situated to other historically significant sites such as the Werowocomoco archaeological site, the Captain John Smith National Historic Trail and the Yorktown Battlefield at Colonial National Historical Park. Machicomoco means “a special meeting place” and is Virginia’s 40th state park.
