The Fry's Spring Neighborhood is located in the south-west corner of the City of Charlottesville.

For planning purposes, it is one of 18 neighborhoods officially designated by the Department of Neighborhood Development Services.

Landmarks include the Fry's Spring Beach Club, Azalea Park, a bridge carrying Jefferson Park Avenue Extended over the railroad tracks, as well as the service station in the northeast corner of the intersection of JPA/Fontaine Avenue/Maury Avenue.

The neighborhood is a mix of single-family residential and student housing, and many in the Fry's Spring Neighborhood Association feel their community is under attack from growth in Albemarle County. However, the City's rezoning in 2003 also created a demand for in-fill development. It is known for its unique architecture[2].

Parts of the neighborhood are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. [3]

The median on JPA Extended is the former alignment for a railway that carried a trolley to the Fry's Spring Beach Club. [4]
