Fall Festival

It might still seem far off, but the Goochland County Fall Festival will be here before you know it!

The 2018 Fall Festival will take place on Saturday, October 27 from 12:00 - 4:00 PM at Goochland Elementary School (rain date: 10/28, 2-6 PM).  Please note that this is a change of venue, due to ongoing construction at the Goochland Sports Complex.  The event will feature inflatables, live music, carnival games, a petting zoo, arts and crafts, vendors, a Halloween costume contest, and more.  Admission is free!

Parks and Recreation is currently accepting applications for volunteers and arts & crafts vendors.  Application forms can be found here.

Parks, Recreation & Facilities 2016 - 2020 Master Plan

Master Plan
The Goochland County 2016-2020 Parks and Recreation Master Plan is Goochland's second effort to strategically plan for future parks and recreation facilities and services. The Master Plan is necessary to evaluate citizen demand for services versus current services, to guide planning for future facilities, and to support cost effective allocations of valuable County resources.
