Mint Springs Valley Park
Local park in Crozet with great views, hiking, fishing, and (when open) lake for swimming.
Hiking, fishing, picnicking, swimming* (*seasonally,) boating, and relaxation, are some of the perks of this nearby lovely county park.
Small lakes surrounded by small mountains - some for fishing and one for swimming from a beach with bath house and a lifeguard. Pavillion and grills for picnics, nice playground for the younger set. Trails around the lake.
There is a beach area with a floating dock, a playground, plenty of picnic pavilions, places to fish, and lots of hiking trails!
“The BEST SPOT for Pizza. Period. Long-time family owned and operated, this place is our weak spot for pie, calzones, sandwiches, and more. ”
“This place was LITERALLY built from the ground up by our dear friend and neighbor. She has run it since day 1, and is also the baker for all of the fabulous treats you'll find there. They have EXCELLENT coffee, sandwiches, breakfast, snacks, teas, baked goods, and more. *It is open M-S. This is a much beloved local business. The garden areas and outdoor seating are also just delightful!”
“Fresh salads, soups, sandwiches and tacos! Great food, quick healthy and kid friendly meals.”
“Award winning coffee (and tea) and home made pastries all in a historic building in the heart of Crozet. Sit back and relax while you sip your drink in one of the comfy leather chairs. ”
