Hello and welcome to the City of Beckley’s Parks and Recreation website. We are excited for you to explore the recreational opportunities that are offered in our City.

Beckley has 12 Community Parks and the Lewis McManus Trail free and opened all year round with a variety of recreational opportunities available. Rentals spaces include our 17 space campground at the New River Park, the Maxwell Hill Community Center, 6 picnic shelters, the Word Park Gazebo and the New River Pool for parties. For more information or to reserve your space call 304-256-1748.

The City of Beckley’s Parks and Recreation Department has announced that the pool at New River Park will open Memorial Day weekend but after only on a modified schedule. Unfortunately, the New River Park pool will only be open this summer on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

The department just wasn’t able to find enough qualified lifeguards to be open their normal seven days a week. So they chose the days they thought could still serve the most people.

The pool will also be unable to offer swim classes this year. However, as long as there are time slot available they will be scheduling birthday parties and after hour pool parties – but only on Fridays, Saturday, and Sundays. The concession stand, offering the same menu as in the past, will be open during pool operation.

The New River Pool will be open from 10:00 am – 6:00 pm Friday and Saturday and from 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm on Sunday beginning Memorial Day weekend. The pool will be closed the weekend of July 14th due to the state swimming tournament.
For more information or to book a pool party call [304-256-1748] or [304-256-1795]
