walnut creek park
Charlie and I may have stumbled upon my new favorite place in Charlottesville. This Saturday, we drove out to Walnut Creek Park. The park has fishing, bike trails, and disc golf areas, but Charlie and I went to the “beach”! Between the sand, the trees, and the kids jumping off the docks, I felt very Kennedy-esque sun bathing on the shore. The beach area offers a shelter with some tables, water fountain, restrooms, etc. You can also rent canoes and paddle around.
The park cost $3 per person to get in (for Albemarle Co. residents) and it was very worth it.
