Writing for richmond.com, Alix Bryan reports on last week’s working meeting on the future of the canal:
It was clear that a strong majority want to interact with the Canal, not just observe it. There was a demand for fewer restrictions and for biking, pet walking, and even kayaking through the Canal. While Venture Richmond said ticket sales have increased for the Canal boat cruises that run on evenings and weekends, many want more use from the Canal. Also mentioned was an observation deck for the rapids.
