Walnut Creek Park in Albemarle County is making headlines.
The park was ranked fifth among the southeast's top urban parks by readers of Blue Ridge Outdoors magazine, which is one of the largest outdoor magazines along the southeast. The park is popular for its many hiking and biking trails.
"We just hope our local residents who have not enjoyed Walnut Creek Park will see what a treasure they have in their own backyard and will come out and enjoy it," said Pat Mullaney, Director of Parks and Recreation.
Other parks topping the list are in Richmond, DC, and Atlanta, Georgia.
