The city of Richmond north of the James River comprises the North Side, East End, and West End areas. The fourth quadrant of the city, South Richmond, is everything south of the river. South Richmond, sometimes referred to as Dogtown, offers easy access to the James, unlike the areas to the north. There are many private, wooded spots along the banks of the river where you can relax and enjoy the water rolling by. You can also enjoy swimming opportunities at the Pony Pasture, rock-skipping near Bell Isle, and fishing at Ancarrow’s Landing.
In addition to easy access to the river and all of its recreation and leisure opportunities, South Richmond also offers easy access to major transportation routes. The oldest neighborhood in the South Side is Manchester, and it is here the eastward-flowing James dramatically changes direction toward the south, forming an elbow. From this elbow, Semmes Avenue extends toward Forest Hill, Woodland Heights, and Spring Hill, while Midlothian Turnpike leads to Powhatan and Chesterfield counties. Similarly, Jefferson Davis Turnpike heads south toward Petersburg and Colonial Heights. The chain of South Richmond communities continues with Stratford Hills, Willow Oaks, Westover Hills, and Bon Air, all linked by Riverside Drive, Richmond’s most scenic thoroughfare.
South Richmond is home to forty-one percent of the city’s overall population. It is a low-key community sandwiched between the rapidly expanding Chesterfield County and the hustle and bustle of North Richmond.
