(From left) Ward Robinette, president, Towne Bank of Portsmouth, the Honorable Kenneth Wright, Portsmouth mayor, and Dr. David Stuckwisch, Portsmouth schools superintendent, were among several elected officials who attended the March 29 groundbreaking ceremony for Paradise Creek Nature Park in Portsmouth, Va. The nature park is a 40-acre waterfront park on the southern branch of the Elizabeth River. When phase 1 work is completed in spring 2013, the park will boast two miles of nature trails and restored native plants that meander through one of the last stands of mature forest on the river.
