Completed in 2006, this cooperative project totaled approximately $846,400. A grant of $150,000 was provided from the VSRFDF to assist in the improvement of the landing facilities. Located under the Coleman Bridge on the Gloucester Point side, the boat ramps, access piers, and parking lot are just some of the improvements that visitors may utilize. "The Point Walk" with walking paths, historical information kiosks, a gazebo, and handicapped accessible restroom facilities are available for those not venturing out on the York River. The mouth of the York River provides opportunities for nice catches of croaker, spot, flounder, striped bass, and gray trout.
