A new map and info kiosk in Claudius Crozet Park, virtually at the central spot in the Crozet trail network, was dedicated Dec. 1. It was an Eagle Scout project built by Aaron Cole of Boy Scout Troop 114, which meets at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Ivy.
The project took a month of Saturdays to finish in July and Cole had help from assistant scoutmaster Bruce Sullivan. Cole also raised the $1,000 it took to provide materials. The kiosk will hold a map of the trails system, and a display box for organizations that use Crozet Park to post information in.
Plaques inside credit Cole and also donors to the tree-planting fund that put 14 trees into Crozet Park along the trail route last year. The kiosk’s outside walls are now part of a mural contest for Western Albemarle High School art students.
