Valle Crucis Park News ~ November 2020

The 2020 winter holiday season will be different for many this year, as plans for get-togethers with friends and loved ones have to be updated. Spending time outdoors at the Park is still a good option, however! Please enjoy your time at the Park safely and responsibly. Be kind to those around you and wear a mask when gathering in groups or passing people on the walking trails. 

While you’re at the Park, you’ll notice a newly-repaved stretch of the walking path near the river. It looks great and repaired a section that had been badly damaged by tree roots. This capital improvement was made possible by the parking donation initiative that was implemented during summer 2020. We are so happy to have been able to make this upgrade for all to enjoy. 

Our executive director, Ashley Galleher, has a fun project planned for the winter months. If you have special memories from Valle Crucis Park that we can share on our social media pages, please send these recollections to Ashley, along with a photo (
