The James River Outdoor Coalition, Riverside Outfitters, and other volunteers came together recently to improve a section of the James. The area they most recently worked on is about a quarter-mile downstream from Nickel Bridge and is used by Riverside Outfitters and other vendors to launch various watercraft for shooting the rapids closer to downtown.

The James River Shelter Project is an effort made possible by James River Outdoor Coalition (JROC) – a nonprofit organization established in 1997 that provides resources to complete improvements in and around the James River Park System.

Shelter is an access point to the river provided by the park for local outfitters, programs in the park, and emergency services. This area is frequented by park users throughout the year.
