The new Crozet Park Aquatic and Recreation Center (Crozet PARC) will be the first of its kind in Albemarle County. It will provide affordable year round swimming and fitness programming for families in the western part of the county and beyond.
Our fundraising campaign has two phases. The first benchmark is to raise $200,000 in the community to match a pledge from Claudius Crozet Park, Inc. This $400,000 benchmark will provide the funding to add a removable dome to the existing pool; the final phase of the campaign will provide the funding to convert the existing park building into a recreation center that will offer fitness equipment, classes, after- school and camp programs, and community space for healthy lifestyle workshops. The Crozet P.A.R.C. will be a special place, open to all, regardless of ability or income.

Do we need another fitness place? Here we go again with 3 & 4 of something.
“fitness equipment, classes, after- school and camp programs, and community space for healthy lifestyle workshops. The Crozet P.A.R.C. will be a special place, open to all, regardless of ability or income”
The above sounds great hope the community can make this work!
In Response to Mel:
We are very aware of the commercial businesses in Crozet that offer fitness and do NOT want to compete with them. Our goal is to offer things that they don’t and to make the park a destination year round for people of all ages. The new Crozet P.A.R.C. will be very different from the other offerings in the community. What we hope to do is fill a large gap in the community especially when it comes to offerings for children and teens. We will be at the Arts and Crafts festival this weekend and would love to answer any questions and take suggestions regarding the Crozet P.A.R.C. project.
Thanks – hope to see you at this weekend’s Crozet Arts and Crafts show!
