City of Roanoke Opens New Park

Posted: Updated:
It’s officially Spring, and officials from the City of Roanoke say adults, children, and pets will have a new place to go outdoors and have fun.

The Roanoke City Council, as well as staff from the Parks and Recreation department, had a ribbon cutting ceremony for Countryside Park.

The Director of Parks and Recreation, Steven Buschor, says the 33 acre park has a new playground for children to play on and trails for those who want to experience the outdoors.

“Everyone from the citizens, to the professional design team, and the contractors will all work collaboratively on getting this park.  I think it’s a home run for everybody,” Buschor said.

Parks and Recreation officials say the trail will connect to the Lick Run Greenway, which will ultimately connect the park to downtown Roanoke.
