The rolling 20 acres is full of beautiful trees providing much shade and color to the park. Limestone rock breaks add to its mystique and on the north end flows the Tuscarora Creek, used for trout fishing and wading.
The pavilions are booked solid all summer long and the pool gets tremendous use during public hours and private rentals from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.
Parks & Recreation offers its swim lessons program at this facility each summer with over 1,200 registrations per summer.
Other events include a 12 week summer concert series free to the public.

The park became a public park in 1947 and in 1987 was deeded to the City of Martinsburg to be maintained by the Martinsburg-Berkeley County Parks and Recreation Board.
