The Parklands receives ZERO tax dollars for annual operations, so we rely on visitors like YOU to keep our parks free for all to enjoy, 365 days a year! Join or renew as a Member during our annual Membership Drive, June 10-15.
Encompassing a total of 15 acres, The Greensward, similar to the larger Egg Lawn in Beckley Creek Park, offers the perfect area to set up a picnic, fly a kite or to play ball or catch. The Greensward is surrounded by a paved 0.7 mile fully accessible trail for walkers and runners only, and is only a short walk from the Cliffside Playground and Sprayground.
The Greensward name pays homage to Frederick Law Olmsted’s original name for his plan for Central Park in New York City.
We are a donor-supported public park We count on you!
Being a donor-supported public park means we rely on donations, not tax dollars, for annual operations each year. Because of your generosity, we are able to maintain, program, and further develop this extraordinary public space without charging an entry fee. Together we work to enhance quality of life and help our community and economy grow in ways that are healthy, sustainable, and enjoyable for people of all ages.
