More to come soon… but here is just a little from their program and a map. Beautiful location right on Virginia Tech Property…
Park Score: 8/10
Location: 303 Wilson Ave
Bathrooms: Not that I saw, but recreational building next door that I am sure has them available during operation hours.
Parking: Yes, parking lot that probably has room for about 20 cars at bottom of hill specifically for park
Pavilions: only one, but grills are also available in the area.
Other: This park is dog friendly! Bags are provided at the entrance. There is also access to a trail that runs behind the park at the bottom of a hill.
This park is pretty great. More of an adult feel since there is not a major play structure as with the other park. Instead they have these unique climbing structure that is of epic proportions! I honestly cannot see how it is safe for smaller children, but speaking from an adult perspective (and personal experience) the structure is a lot of fun to climb on! There is also beautiful tree islands surrounding the main portion of the park. Those islands have benches tucked away in them making them nice little spots to sit and listen to the birds. We heard a few Morning Doves and a few other birds while there ourselves. Would also be a great place to grill dinner and relax. I definitely recommend checking this one out!
