Valle Crucis Park News ~ Winter 2022

The new year began with the first measurable snowfall of the season, followed by frigid temperatures — a reminder of what winters are all about here in the High Country! Although the landscape is in a state of dormancy there is still much beauty to be found here at the Park, including the river views, bird life, and dramatic sunrises and sunsets. Don’t let the cold weather keep you away.

Although it’s relatively quiet around here during the winter season, you’ll still see improvements underway, such as a new grill/picnic area by the walking bridge alongside the river and updates to the children’s play village. Look for announcements about Audubon Society sponsored bird walks in the Park on Wednesday mornings. If you want to keep up with features like our “Wildlife Wednesday” postings and other news, please make sure to follow our pages on social media.
