During the August 2023 Botetourt County Board of Supervisors Meeting, Parks & Recreation Director Mandy Adkins shared exciting news about a collaborative grant project with the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation!

The county is partnering with the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation and Kids in Parks to be a part of the nationally recognized Track Trail program. This program will make the Cherry Blossom Trail an official TRACK Trail! Kids in Parks provides a nationwide network of trails for kids and families. Each TRACK Trail offers fun, self-guided activities that provide new adventures on every hike. Kids can earn rewards for each Kids in Parks adventure they track! The grant will provide a sign that will be placed at the entrance of the Cherry Blossom Trail. The sign will have interactive brochures for kiddos to use while they adventure along the trail!
We are very excited about this new opportunity for our community! Find out more at:
