Rives Park
Charlottesville Va Parks and Grounds

Rives Park is a neighborhood park, 4.3 acres in size, consisting of flat open space with a view of Carter's Mountain in the distance.  It is located on Rives Street between Monticello and Florence Roads, near Quarry Park.  Featured here are a basketball court, a softball field, a shelter with four picnic tables, and playground equipment. 

Dogs must be on leash and under control.  City code requires dog owners to clean up feces of dogs in their care; a plastic bag dispenser/waste receptable is provided for cleaning up dog waste.  Failure to abide by the leash law and dog feces cleanup law is a Class 4 misdemeanor.

The park is open 6AM to 9PM.  Off-street parking is available.
