The Ronceverte City Council met Mar. 7 and discussed an upcoming comprehensive plan to revitalize the Ronceverte Island Park. As part of the meeting, Mayor Deena Pack led the Ronceverte City Council to discuss the benefits of bringing a new look to the park.
“Funding the comprehensive plan for the Island Park will help the City to determine the best way to move forward with improvements and/or expansion of the Park,” says Mayor Pack. “There are so many opportunities to make the Park better for our citizens, and we want to be sure we are making decisions that will best serve the community in the long term.”
The plan comes from long-time Ronceverte resident Dan Withrow. The Ronceverte Island Park has been an invaluable resource for the larger community including Lewisburg and White Sulphur Springs. The positioning of the park by the river makes it one of the most accessible and wonderful parts of Ronceverte and giving the park a new look will only add to the enjoyment of Greenbrier County residents who visit.
There is no set timeline yet for when the park’s comprehensive plan will happen. The comprehensive plan will add to the overall work happening on the Ronceverte Island Park, which includes a splash pad and a dog park. It is clear that the park is gearing up to be a destination for people all over the Greenbrier Valley area.
