Williams Wharf Landing is open to the public from sunrise to sunset. No trespassing after sundown without permission or unless you are attending an event. During the day, we invite you to visit the Wharf with kayaks, canoes, small sailboats, rowing shells and other motorless watercraft to launch from the floating dock and enjoy the beautiful East River.

Because of restrictions imposed with one of the major grants used to restore the Wharf, we do not allow motor-powered boats to use the Wharf without permission and/or prior arrangements.

We also offer a covered Pavilion for outdoor but sheltered picnics, and a fishing pier (bring your license!). Due to insurance requirements, groups of 16 or more must call 804-725-9685 to reserve facilities for your event.
