Jamestown Beach Event Park

2205 Jamestown Rd
Williamsburg, VA 23185

Jamestown Beach Event Park is currently closed through mid-May for park improvements. 


When Jamestown Event Beach Park reopens this spring, it will be more fun than ever!  Portions of the beachfront will be restored to help stabilize the shoreline and provide more beach; a second park entrance will be available; and a small paddle craft may be launched from a new launch area.  There will also be an ADA-accessible trail and beach access, an observation pier, and restroom and concession facility.


Jamestown Beach Event Park is a family-friendly park where you can spend the day in the shade, have fun in the sun, tan on the sand and watch the awesome sunsets, all while you enjoy the breeze that ushers the waves across the James River to shore.  Bring your own propane grill or use the park’s charcoal grills to prepare your favorite summer foods in a shaded picnic area.  The beach park is a great location to paddle board, launch a canoe or kayak, wind sail and parasail.  You may anchor boat just off shore to relax with family and friends.  Water skiing and jet skiing are popular activities, too.  Fishing is not permitted on the beachfront, but is permitted on the peninsula near the bridge.  There are no lifeguards; guests swim at their own risk.

While at Jamestown Beach Event Park, please note: use of fryers and towable smokers/grills are permitted in designated areas only and require an approved Park Use Permit; charcoal is permitted in park-provided grills only; alcohol is prohibited, tents/shade structures are prohibited in the picnic area and hanging items from trees, including hammocks, is prohibited.  The park closes at sunset so guests should make preparations to leave the park before dusk as there are no lights in the park. 


Jamestown Beach Event Park is dog-friendly, too.  Dogs must be under complete and immediate control of owners at all times and must be on a leash no longer than 8 foot.  Owners are responsible for removing dog waste.  Litter bags are available onsite and guests should use only what they need while in the park.  Off leash is OK if the dog is in the water or if you settle on a location where not many people are and the dog is obedient; however, please defer to staff’s judgment because they may be responding to concerns of other guests.  We like to maintain an environment where everyone feels safe and will enjoy their experience, including dogs! 


Visit Jamestown Beach Event Park.  Again this spring!!! For more information, call 757-259-5360.


Jamestown Beach Event Park is minutes from Chickahominy Riverfront Park where camping is allowed, and within eight miles of Busch Gardens, Colonial Williamsburg and Water Country USA.
