Albemarle County Parks is scheduling the replacement of the swimming dock and bridge in the upper lake at Mint Springs Valley Park to begin on January 27, 2014. The lake will be pumped down below 12' requiring the area to be restricted from public access for the duration of the project. No fishing will be allowed in the upper lake starting when the pump down process begins. You will still be able to fish in the other lake and the trails and park will remain open. For further information and project progress please contact us (434) 296-5844. Thank you for your understanding!
