Valle Crucis Park News ~ JUne 2021

The summer season is officially underway! We’re delighted to see so many people enjoying all that the Park has to offer. Make sure to follow the Valle Crucis Community Park Facebook page for updates about our summer environmental education programming and other events, and to keep up with the latest Park news.

If you haven’t already done so, consider becoming a Friend of the Park (FOTP) by donating at the $100 level or higher. As a Friend of the Park you’ll receive a hang tag for free parking on summer weekends, great coupons from local businesses, and the satisfaction of knowing that you have helped put the community into Valle Crucis Community Park! Note that through the summer season we are requesting a $5 parking donation on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from visitors who do not have FOTP status. These funds are used to support upgrades like pathway repaving and regrading the parking lot, among other needs. 

We publish a monthly e-newsletter to keep Park patrons up to date on Park activities. If you would like to be added to the mailing list contact our Executive Director, Ashley Galleher (
