The Valle Crucis Community Park
Valle Crucis is North Carolina’s first rural historic district and the entire community is officially listed on the National Register of Historic Place. Nationally recognized historic buildings are abound in Valle Crucis.
A small mountain community located in the northwest corner of the North Carolina High Country, the heart of this picturesque hamlet is nestled at the conjunction of three rivers – the Watauga, Dutch Creek, and Clark’s Creek. It is an area of uncommon beauty with its rolling hills, pastoral valleys, and pristine rivers and streams. Although no official population statistics are available, there is a general consensus that Valle Crucis contains about 600 year-round residents.
“The rustic countryside provides ample opportunities for recreational activities. Both residents and visitors alike can be found enjoying the amenities at the riverfront community park.”
The Valle Crucis Community Park is an important component of community life for our area. The Park serves residents of Watauga, Avery, and Ashe Counties in North Carolina as well as visitors from other parts of the state and nation. The Park’s twenty-three acres provide an ideal setting for walking, jogging, picnicking, and fishing. Park fields are also used for several sporting events.
