Crozet Park Expansion Survey

Crozet Park Expansion
Your input is necessary!

Almost three years ago the Park’s board of directors solicited input via online survey from the Crozet community and the County at large regarding ideas for new amenities at community-owned Claudius Crozet Park.

From that input significant capital improvements were triggered including new pavilions, a dog park, expanded parking and soon, a multipurpose perimeter trail. A pond-side amphitheater is planned for 2017.

We are now soliciting input on the largest of these capital improvements, a comprehensive expansion of the Park’s aquatic and fitness center.  Your input will directly guide our efforts.

Please help us take this next big step by providing your input at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/facility-expansion

 Thank you,  2016 Board of Directors, Claudius Crozet Park
