Chris Greene Lake Swimming Area to Remain Closed Over Weekend
5/31/2018

After reviewing the water levels at Chris Greene Lake, the Albemarle County Parks and Recreation Department will not open the lake for swimming this weekend. Due to the flooding experienced on Thursday, May 31, 2018, current conditions at the lake may compromise public safety. Several of the lake’s beach amenities are currently underwater. Albemarle County staff must wait for the water to recede before cleanup and any necessary repairs can be performed. Current weather forecasts might further impact these operations.

This closure only includes the swimming area and the beach at Chris Greene Lake. Chris Greene Lake Park will be open and all other activities are allowed. Weekend swimming at Walnut Creek Park and Mint Springs Valley Park will continue as scheduled.

For further questions concerning the closure of Chris Greene Lake, please contact Tim Hughes at thughes@albemarle.org
