Crozet Park Gets Funding for Perimeter Trail

This is cool.

From Crozet Park’s Facebook page: (and RealCrozetVA)

We have some exciting news to share!! The Federal Highway Administration will provide us with a recreational trails grant. This grant plus the generous private match from the Neumeister family will allow us to proceed with building the long awaited Perimeter Trail. Creation of this trail has been on the Park’s master plan for many years, and respondents to last year’s Park survey overwhelmingly chose the Perimeter Trail as the most beneficial addition to our Park.

Background from the Crozet Gazette:

We are poised to start several Park projects in 2015:

Perimeter Trail: a paved, 8-foot wide, multi-use path, almost a mile in length, will go around the entire Park. Funding for this project would come from a grant the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) along with a generous gift from a local family. Our goal is to break ground in early summer.

Crozet Park is (seemingly) quickly becoming more and more of a destination location in Crozet … now … how about sidewalks on Park & Tabor?

Crozet Independence Day Parade and Celebration – July 5, 2015

One of my favorite things about life in Crozet is the entirely-volunteer-driven Crozet Independence Day Parade and Celebration. This year the celebration is on 5 July 2015.

The parade starts at 5. 

Bounce houses, games, food, music at Crozet Park starts at 6.

Fireworks start at dark (around 9:30)

 Crozet Independence Day Parade and Celebration - 2015

July 5, 2015 is a Sunday. Why Sunday?

It’s because the fireworks companies are booked at bigger venues on Saturday night and none were available, even over a year in advance. But because our show is Sunday night instead, we are getting a discount and so can afford an even bigger display!
