Important Information

To complete the remaining improvement projects at Jamestown Beach Event Park, the new entrance (across from the Jamestown Settlement parking lot) will close weekdays until further notice to allow the remaining site work to be completed as quickly as possible. The remaining work includes the installation of filtration strips designed to capture and degrade pollutants and of a final layer of gravel to complete the ADA-accessible walkway. The park will remain open and guests may use the old entrance (near the ferry) to enjoy the park. 


Jamestown Beach Event Park offers a summer of fun for you and your family! You can play in the sun, tan on the sand and watch the awesome sunsets at this family-friendly park! Guests may bring their own propane grill or use one of the park’s charcoal grills to prepare their favorite summer foods. The beachfront park is a great way to spend the day! 


Park amenities include:

  • A shaded picnic area with picnic tables and charcoal grills
  • A designated fishing area (a freshwater license is required)
  • An Observation Pier (for viewing only)
  • A new ADA-accessible walkway including a beach mat to make water access easier
  • A restroom/concession facility that features a water fountain, cold drinks, bags of ice, snacks and ice cream
  • Paddle craft launch/loading area
  • additional parking/second entrance
  • Outdoor rinse stations


The beachfront 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 eight-feet. Owners are responsible for removing dog waste. Litter bags are available and guests should use only what they need while in the park.  Off leash is appropriate when your dog is in the water or if you settle in a location where there are few people AND the dog is obedient. However, please defer to staff’s judgment as they may receive concerns from other visitors. We like to maintain an environment where everyone feels safe and will enjoy their experience, including dogs. 

Want to camp? Jamestown Beach Event Park is minutes from Chickahominy Riverfront Park where camping is accommodated. The park is also within eight miles of Busch Gardens, Colonial Williamsburg and Water Country USA, so include Jamestown Beach Event Park when you plan your vacation!
