Mundane Information

McIntire Park contains land originally donated by Paul Goodloe McIntire and continues to be one of the most popular parks in the City. Located off of U.S. Route 250 Bypass, it features rolling land with magnificent views of the mountains to the east, a heavily wooded area with steep and varied topography and winding streams. There is a major community focus on the lighted softball fields, baseball field, and the three shelters which are used extensively from spring to fall. In April every year McIntire Park hosts the carnival for the Annual Dogwood Festival. In the southeastern half of the park, to the east of the railroad tracks, lies a nine-hole sand green golf course. This section of the park has its own parking lot and offers a playground with tot area for children ages 2-5 years old and a wading pool. There are nature trails in the west end of the park near picnic shelters and a new bridge to Charlottesville High School.
