Campbell County's Park Plan

Campbell County’s Comprehensive Plan calls for a 50 acre park to be built in each of the four high school districts– Brookville, Rustburg/Concord, Altavista and William Campbell.  It also provides for a 100 plus acre countywide park to be centrally located in the County.  The County’s goal is to have the parks completed by the year 2020, and with the assistance of each community, it can become a reality. 

Below is information on each park site. We need your help in planning, developing and maintaining all the parks, not only for future generations, but to make it an even better place to live, work and play.

Community Park

This 90 acre park is located beside William Campbell High School.  The Master Plan for the entire park and Phase I development is now complete.
