Valle Crucis Park News ~ October 2021

The changing season is full upon us. If you visit the Park you’ll be treated to a glorious color show as the trees on the hills surrounding the Park change day by day. The combination of natural features that grace this Park–the open valley, the hills lining the valley, and the Watauga River–makes Valle Crucis Park one of the best places around to observe and enjoy the changes in flora and fauna that accompany the flow of the seasons. Join us for a quiet walk, bird watching, a picnic, or time with family and friends!

October brings the end of another summer tradition, Music in the Valle. You can enjoy one last Music event on Friday, October 15 from 6:00 to dark. Some of our favorite musicians will be playing: the Aaron Burdett Trio and the Lauren Hayworth Trio. Mark your calendars–this is an event you won’t want to miss. 

See you at the Park!
