Like many roadside rests, the Meadow River Community Park, had fallen into disrepair when Interstate 64 routed most traffic around US Route 60 at Rainelle. The park had become a public eyesore and nuisance with old tires and other trash being dumped near the stream.
Recently, the Meadow River Watershed Association assembled groups of volunteers to rehabilitate the park to take it from eyesore to showplace. The shelters have been cleaned and painted, the bathrooms have been returned to functioning and the park has been cleaned to make a family friendly atmosphere for community use.
The park has a rain garden with many native wildflowers and other plants. Areas near the walking track have American walnut saplings as well as blight resistant American chestnut hybrids to illustrate the dominant forest trees of the area many years ago in the heyday of the nearby Meadow River Lumber Company in Rainelle.
This beautiful park illustrates what can be done by dedicated volunteers with a vision and a willingness to build connections to community resources.
This image is a 360 degree panorama of the area.
