Volunteers with the James River Hikers, James River Outdoor Coalition and the James River Park loaded materials at Reedy Creek into a batteau boat to build a wooden boardwalk in North Bank Park on Saturday, Oct. 25, 2014. This rare occurance of a batteau to transport goods in Richmond may not have happened since trains took over more than 150 years ago.
