The New River Land Trust purchased the second of two properties that will make up the new 553-acre park on Brush Mountain in Blacksburg. The park will be home to multi-use trails for community recreation while protecting an ecologically sensitive area. We purchased the first property in 2018.
The park will expand the popular recreation areas of Heritage and Gateway Parks and the Jefferson National Forest. The Poverty Creek Trails Coalition will help develop the trail system. The Land Trust will turn the properties over the Town to manage the park in the next year.
