Elkins Park & Recreation

The Elkins Park & Recreation Commission provides year round opportunities with their recreation programs and facilities. The nine acre City Park was deeded to the City in 1893 by Henry Gassaway Davis and his wife Kate. Located near downtown Elkins, this park has become the hub of all summer activities. There are picnic sites, pavilions, horseshoe pits, and a basketball and volleyball court, along with playground equipment and many other park amenities.


Riverbend Park consists of 19 acres surrounded by the Tygart Valley River. Presently Riverbend Park has two little league fields, (one lighted) a regulation soccer field, a jogging and walking trail, a pavilion and picnic sites. Soon to be built will be a foot bridge over the Tygart River to connect 37 acres in Glendale, for additional recreational activities.

Bluegrass Park houses one of the nicest ball fields in the area. The Robin Harvey Memorial Baseball field is used heavily from Spring to Fall. This is the home field for the Babe Ruth League, American Legion and Elkins High School baseball teams. Over 100 games a year are played here.
