Crozet Park will host its fourth annual Pitch-in at the Park Saturday, April 15th from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event brings together volunteers and businesses throughout the community and to complete many of the park’s maintenance activities; needs that would otherwise be deferred due to lack of manpower and funding.
As in years past, our partner Albemarle County Parks and Recreation will generously provide their tools trailer and many of the materials for the day. Additionally, our very own Crozet Trails Crew is making the Pitch-in a big workday. We’ll also receive support from Yancey Mills Lumber, Blue Ridge Builders Supply, and Sal’s Pizza. This trio of local companies shows their community leadership each year by providing the Park discounted pricing on a variety of supplies and materials.
This year’s event includes several big activities aimed at buttoning up two projects started late last year. Volunteers will clear brush along our beautiful new perimeter trail. This paved trail, almost a mile in length, already gets regular use by walkers, joggers, skateboarders and cyclists.
Our second big project relates to the curbed traffic islands in our new parking lot. To reduce maintenance and flying debris associated with trimming grass in these areas, topsoil in each of these islands will be replaced with ballast stone. Other projects include painting, landscaping and general clean-up activities.
If you enjoy our beautiful park at the heart of Crozet, now is your chance to give back and spend a few hours with friends and neighbors to tackling a variety of projects. Lunch is provided to all volunteers.
