Playground at Greenleaf Park closed for construction beginning January 4

Monday, January 4, 2021

The playground at Greenleaf Park will be closed starting January 4 due to the installation of new equipment. We will notify the public when the playground at Greenleaf Park re-opens. Stay tuned for updates.

The rest of Greenleaf Park including the picnic shelter and basketball court will remain open to the public. All Charlottesville Parks & Recreation picnic shelters are first-come, first served unless reserved for an outdoor class.


Greenleaf Park consists of 14 acres of grassy hillsides with hardwood and evergreen trees. The land was part of McIntire Park until the construction of Route 250 Bypass cut it off from the rest of the park. At that time it became a neighborhood park with its own identity.

Greenleaf offers a playground area, including equipment for children ages 2 to 5 years old, a picnic shelter, seasonal restrooms, and a half-basketball court. There is a wide soft surface trail that follows the creek near the 250 bypass and connects the park to Walker school as well as natural trails leading to Plymouth Road.
