Darden Towe Park and Chris Greene Lake Closed

On Thursday, May 31, 2018, Western and Northern portions of Albemarle County experienced heavy rainfall and subsequent flooding. As a result of unsafe water levels, public access to Chris Greene Lake and Darden Towe Park is now closed. Albemarle County staff are on location to monitor the situation. A thorough inspection will commence when the water recedes.

Staff are still assessing Walnut Creek Park and Mint Springs Valley Park. More information will be available once their assessment is complete.

Residents experiencing water outages are encouraged to contact the Albemarle County Service Authority at 434-977-4511.

Please direct questions to Siri Russell at 434-296-5841 ext. 3062 or at
