Valle Crucis Park News ~ August 2020

The Park is open and more beautiful than ever! However, per North Carolina Phase 2 guidelines the playground areas remain closed. Parking is allowed in the gravel lot only–please, no parking on the roadway, in the overflow lot, or at nearby businesses. We hope you enjoy your time at the Park safely and responsibly! Thanks for your continuing cooperation.

Effective July 24, we have implemented a new parking fee of $5 per car on most Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm. Friends of the Park receive free parking at all times. For more information about the parking fee initiative, please view this Summer Update video or read our parking fee FAQ document. If you have further questions or want to learn more about becoming a Friend of the Park, please click HERE or email Ashley at

If you’re missing Music in the Valle, we’ve got you covered! You can still enjoy some great Friday night music with family and friends by tuning into our live-stream “Tiny Porch Series” on the Park’s Facebook page. Learn more about upcoming concerts here.

Finally, save the date for our upcoming annual *online* Park auction, which will begin on Saturday, September 12. We are planning a great event that you won’t want to miss! Visit our Events page link for more information.  

We are a nonprofit organization. 80% of our operating budget comes from donations from visitors like you. Click here for information on our Annual Auction.
