Stone House Park Project

Stonehouse Park Project

Location: Caldwell, West Virginia

In 2022, the City of Lewisburg purchased a parcel of land adjacent to the city’s existing water plant. Preliminary plans for development of the land include a suite of ball fields, picnic shelters, restrooms and parking. IMBA recommends trail and bike programming on the unusable wooded portions of the property bordering the Greenbrier River Trail, a 78-mile rail trail that follows the Greenbrier River from Caldwell (between Lewisburg and White Sulphur Springs) to Cass in Pocahontas County. Additionally, we propose a shared-use gravel path along the edge of future sports fields to be used by walkers, runners and cyclists. In the wooded areas, 1.7 miles of beginner to intermediate single track would connect to a
beginner bike-optimized loop connected to the Greenbrier River Trail. Trails in the norther parcel of woods would progress from beginner to intermediate experiences. A small pumptrack, tot track, and/or skills zone may be situated near the ball fields. This project will not begin until the City of Lewisburg completes construction on a new municipal water plant and intake system.
