Comments: The Richmond Flood Wall serves as a protective concrete wall against a 280 year flood. Since its opening, it has yet to be tested by a substantial flood. The Flood Wall has two overlooks on the Southside and several walking paths along its perimeter for tours. The Flood Wall has been attributed to the development of Shockoe Bottom, once prone to substantial damage from severe floods.
