Amidst all the vineyards and wineries, the park is another green that is well loved and frequented by people. It was previously called Lee Park and contains all of the land bounded by Jefferson Street, First Street N.E., Market Street and Second Street N.E. The park got its previous name due to an imposing monument of Robert E Lee perched upon it. The name was later changed in 2017 after the statue was removed from the space. Today, it is one of the favourite spot for picnicking amongst both the tourists and the natives. Coming here, you will find a 1.04 acres of land spread in the downtown area with many benches, tables and various kind of flowers. A perfect place for those who wish to get away from the hubbub f the city and spend some time moments amidst the lap of the nature. Just bring a book and you are set!

Robert Edward Lee Park Reviews & Ratings

  • We looked up some parks to visit and chose this one based on the pictures for shading while walking and a good sidewalk. When we got to the park there were a ton of homeless people laying around the park and the park itself looked rundown and trashy. We did not stay long at all.

  • This is the infamous park where, several years ago, during a stand-in turned violent, a young lady in the crowd was struck and killed as well as numerous others injured. The clash between the two groups was in part due to the statue of Robert E. Lee in the center of what was then "Lee" park. Many found it offensive and the headlines it received encouraged other groups across the south to lobby to have similar statues removed from college campuses and parks.

  • Great downtown. Lots of neat shops to browse and buy. Eat in the street from local restaurants serving. Lots of things to see. Beautiful brick street. Walk, walk and walk.

  • Beautiful and sunny day about 60 degrees. Nice view of downtown with a slope to the park's hill. Large tree on the corner likely several hundred years old, guessing by its 4-5-foot diameter. Worth a look, as is Charlottesville's other parks well planned many years ago.

  • A historic, good and quiet place inside downtown!
