Share Your Vision on Shaping Our ShoresShaping Our Shores logo

The Shaping Our Shores (SOS) Master Plan was adopted in 2009 to guide the development of three of James City County’s waterfront park facilities – Chickahominy Riverfront Park, Jamestown Beach Event Park and the James City County Marina. These waterfront parks have become celebrated treasures to James City County and its citizens and the update of the Master Plan is to maintain the facilities and to keep them viable in serving the needs of our community. Learn more about the SOS Master Plan update process on our website, which includes park maps, park improvements, accomplishments and the full list of proposed changes at each facility.

Share your vision with us. Get involved, we need your help!
