Park
“IX is a great spot for strolling in the day with a funky playground, restaurants and a coffee shop peppered throughout. They also host The Looking Glass, an immersive art installation that's "an otherworldly enchanted forest" created by 14 Charlottesville artists. Also, at night sometimes there's live music or DJ's and dancing in the lower industrial space. Worth checking out!”

Park
“The Lawn itself is cool, but the beautiful gardens behind the serpentine walls are breathtaking! Not many people explore these gardens, so you probably won't run into many other people. There are excellent climbing trees!”
