About Woodland Heights

Woodland Heights AdvertisementWoodland Heights is an urban neighborhood south of the James River established in 1889 by the Southside Land & Improvement Company. The neighborhood includes access to adjoining Forest Hill Park, the James River Park System, Canoe Run Park, Carter Jones Park/Fonticello Park, and the McDonough Community Garden.

The neighborhood is recognized as one of the first streetcar suburbs in Richmond (1890), and later became a neighborhood within the city limits (1914). Our historic district is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmarks Register (2009).
