If you are looking for a little fun in the sun this holiday weekend, the Albemarle County beaches are opening just in time.
The swimming beaches at Chris Greene Lake, Walnut Creek Park, and Mint Springs Valley Park are open from Saturday through Monday for the three day weekend. Lifeguards are on duty from 10am to 8 pm at all three beaches, plus there are many more activities available.
Amy Smith, Program Supervisor for Albemarle County Parks and Rec. says, "We also have canoeing at Walnut Creek and Chris Greene and then we have trails at all three parks to hike and shelters for families to have picnics and at Walnut Creek we have mountain bike trails and disc golf."
