Family Memories are Made in Goochland
Goochland offers nostalgic family fun that’s big on excitement and easy on the budget. Pack up your precious cargo and hit the road!
Stretch your legs–and your imagination–at Goochland’s public parks. These kid-endorsed fun zones have playgrounds, fields, and a trail network suited for hours of play. Spot local wildlife, toss a frisbee, and make new memories on acres of lush parkland.
After a burst of exercise, stop for some kid-friendly fare at either the Courthouse Market & Grill or Goochland Restaurant. Featuring delicious sandwiches, burgers, and pizza, the Courthouse Market is bound to have something for everyone in the family. If your family is looking for classic, diner-style specialties, Goochland Restaurant is a go-to serving American Favorites.
Patterson’s two,18 hole mini golf courses and covered driving range offer timeless fun in a charming setting. Brightly colored animal sculptures and whimsical designs adorn the courses, making them perfect backdrops for family selfies–or holes in one! As a bonus, the concession stand is a great stop for post-competition snacks.
Bogeys Sports Park is an equally exciting alternative where “please don’t touch” doesn’t apply. A golf course, a driving range, batting cages, and little links for smaller players provide fun for every age and stage. The best adventures are the least complicated.
A trip to the drive-in is the recommended finale for your Goochland County day. This homage to classic Americana features a playground, lawn games, food, plentiful parking, and affordable pricing. Watch your flick from a lawn chair under the stars or from the comfort of your car.
