Albemarle County Newsroom


Albemarle County is Partnering with the Kids and Parks Program!

Kids in Parks is an expanding network of family-friendly outdoor adventures called TRACK Trails. Each TRACK Trail features self-guided brochures and signs that turn your visit into a fun and exciting outdoors experience. Best of all, you can earn prizes for tracking your adventures!

The Kids in Parks program grew out of a vision to address the decline in engagement with nature by getting kids “unplugged” and physically active in parks for their health and the health of our parks. Kids in Parks encourages and supports active family engagement, increases trail use, introduces recreational opportunities available in parks, forests and communities, and creates a network that offers an almost unlimited variety of experience.

On June 13th we're celebrating the grand opening of the Mint Springs Valley Park TRACK Trail in Crozet! We'll meet at the map kiosk at 10 AM for a ribbon cutting ceremony, followed by a walk along the newly renovated lake loop. Albemarle County Parks and Recreation staff and volunteers will lead hikes and give talks about some of the things to be discovered in the park. At 11AM, the lake opens up for swimming so you can make a day of visiting the park! We hope to see you there!

WHEN: Saturday, June 13, 2015
10:00 am
WHERE: Mint Springs Valley Park
