The City of Richmond has recently begun making plans to convert the dam linking Brown's Island to the south side of the James into a cross-river walkway.

The walkway will be ten feet wide, and its route will include three new overlooks, in addition to the dam's existing overlook. Its southern end will be located conveniently close to the Manchester climbing wall.
