A group of private citizens, in partnership with the Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce, invites you to honor community leadership at The Grove, a stone terrace to be located under 150-year-old oak trees on the sweeping hilltop on the east side of McIntire Park.
With inscriptions to past and future community leadership, the terrace will provide a place to admire the oak canopy, view Brown's Mountain, and watch people playing on the lawn. A path, shaded by trees representing the current McIntire Citizenship Award recipients, will start at the new pedestrian bridge and end at The Grove.
