Three Lakes Park & Nature Center


Three Lakes Park & Nature Center is a local favorite for families and a hidden gem for vacation travelers, located just off Interstate 95 in Henrico County, Virginia. The nature center features turtles and snakes from Virginia, and underwater views of an outdoor aquarium that blends into the surrounding lake environment. Trails for hiking follow the lake, and the park has picnic areas and a popular playground.

World of water campers were able to see many of the turtles, reptiles, fish, and wildlife they might encounter in their local ponds, lakes, streams, and rivers.
