Beautiful walk along the Rivanna River, great spots to swim or tube in!
Let the kids play on the playground or skip rocks in the river, then take a walk, jog, or bike ride on the paved trail that winds along the Rivanna.
nice, family park with a playground and a paved, flat walking or running trail along the Rivanna river
“If it’s hot and you want to take your kids swimming, take them to this super fun aquatic park. Slides, a diving board, all sorts of fun stuff, plus a zero entry pool great for little tykes. It can get very crowded, so get there early to get a chair.”
“This is also the Charlottesville Visitors Center. You can catch all of the buses from here, including the FREE trolly, which leaves every 15 minutes and goes between Downtown and the University grounds. ”
“You can rent kayaks or tubs to float down the river in the warm summer months!”
“Busy, popular local scene restaurant bar with thousands of beers and wines to go or have there. Three meals a day using organic, local, healthy ingredients. Most popular are nachos, fish tacos on Saturday, everything from fresh sandwiches on house-made bread to healthy salmon, burgers and salads.”
“Try the White Spot for a Gus Burger, or the Virginian--Charlottesville's oldest restaurant. College Inn and Crozet Pizza are also both locally owned and good. Student bars and nightlife as well.”
