Overview
More
The Valle Crucis Community Park is a nonprofit organization. We depend on visitors like you: 80% of our operating budget comes from donations. The suggested donation is $2 per day. You can donate in the Welcome Center or in donation boxes located around the park. We offer a 1-mile paved path for walking, jogging, biking, or skating, as well as playground areas for children and lots of open space for sports, yard games, or a nap in the sunshine. The Watauga River runs the length of the park and offers incredible fly-fishing as well as a perfect place for little ones to get their feet wet. There are two large covered picnic shelters in the park, as well as several picnic tables. Shelters are available on a first-come, first-served basis unless they have been reserved in advance. Reservations are required for parties of 15 or more. Leashed dogs are welcome.

Large, open park along the Watauga River. This park has a walking trail that winds along the river, picnic shelters, playgrounds and open fields. They also host numerous events including Friday night live music in the summer. Our favorite place in Valle Crucis!

What a beautiful spot to rest, take a walk, or have a picnic lunch! Several picnic tables, grills to use and a nice loop around the park for a walk!

This park is a hidden gem while in the Valle Crucis area! We were surprised at how nice and large the park was. There was plenty of room for people to spread out, relax and play.
