September 30, 2019
SHENANDOAH COUNTY – Seven Bends State Park in Shenandoah County is close to opening according to park officials.
Contractors have been working on facilities like restrooms in the park for several months now, and work is now finished. The facilities will go through state inspections and once cleared, the park will open to the public.
Seven Bends will contain two parking lots, two hand carry boat launch ramps and a set of restrooms for public use. The park also holds several hiking trails and beautiful scenery for local residents to take in. Park staff plan on installing picnic areas for families and friends to use during daylight hours when the park is open.
The park is located just outside of the Town of Woodstock. Seven Bends is a 1,066 acre area in total. It will provide access to the north fork of the Shenandoah River. The park’s name is derived from the famous seven bends within the Shenandoah.
The opening of the park will come quietly sometime near the end of October or early November. The official grand opening of Seven Bends State Park will take place sometime in the Spring.
