As part of our efforts to improve our customer communication, we are going to be featuring a short story about a different partner every week. We will explore the fun and diverse features of each partner! We are kicking off this new project with Clarksburg, West Virginia.
The charming city of Clarksburg is a true gem of West Virginia. Clarksburg is the county seat of Harrison County. The city is loaded with history – featuring multiple historic buildings and landmarks, it is easy to get lost in another time. Take a trip down the Civil War Trails sites or make a stop at the Waldomore, which houses a large number of historical records and the famous Gray Barker Collection.
Modern day Clarksburg provides a lot for both residents and visitors to do. One of the favorite places to visit for locals and visitors alike is Veterans Memorial Park. The 50-acre park is the summer entertainment hub for the city.
“Veterans Memorial Park is the top destination for recreation,” said Tara Morrison, Marketing Coordinator for the Clarksburg Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The park now features a wide variety of summer activities. A favorite is the City Parks of Clarksburg Splash Zone. Originally a city pool, it was closed for the 2012 season to complete a major renovation. The updated Splash Zone opened in 2013 and features a lazy river, waterslides, a 25-meter competition pool and a zero-depth entry children’s play area.
After you have spent your day in the sun splashing around, you can head over to the Clarksburg Amphitheater. The “AMP,” as it is known locally, features both local and national headlining music throughout the summer. In addition, a program that began in 2010 known as “Movies in the Park” is a big hit.
“On Fridays throughout the summer, we offer free movies for families,” Morrison said.
We are thrilled to have Clarksburg as a partner since 2009 and hope you get a chance to experience this historical city.
