The Berkeley County Commission purchased an additional 8.2 acres for the Inwood Park Project.

The future recreation site will now sit on over 31 acres in South Berkeley County across from Musselman High School.

The location is near the original Inwood Park which was established in the late 1800s along the former Cumberland Valley Railroad.

The park was originally a popular spot for picnics, tent revivals, family reunions, dances, and the Inwood Fair.

Berkeley County began work on revitalizing the site in 2021 with the purchase of the first of three parcels of land.

Berkeley County Commission President Jim Whitacre said, “The purchase of this additional acreage reflects the County Commission’s strong commitment to enhancing the quality of life for future generations.”

The Inwood Park Project is expected to receive $1,125,000.00 in federal funding in the 2024 Fiscal Year and has received support from Senators Capito and Manchin.
