Holston Creek Park

We were so excited to see that our county just opened another park and it is near us!  YAY!!!!!  The kids and I love exploring new spaces and this park is going to have tons to explore.  They haven't finished the trails just yet, but it shouldn't be much longer.  We loved the paved trail leading to two fishing ponds.  The view of the mountains from the top of the trail is really nice.  I hope they keep the meadow areas surrounding the trail and not replace them with turf grass.

The property had been a farm and mostly pasture land.  Then the county purchased the land and it became a public dove hunting field for many years.  Finally, the county decided to create a park for this rural area.  They installed a soccer field, two baseball/softball fields, small playground, covered picnic area, and restrooms.  They are working on hiking trails, Frisbee golf course, and mountain bike trails.

Can't wait to go back and explore some more!
