GVCP was borne out of a desire to provide recreational and outdoor educational opportunities for the children of our community. We set out to create, within the general vicinity of Green Valley School, a multipurpose community park.
In September 2000, after more than a year of searching for an ideal site, GVCP purchased 12 acres of land on Big Hill Road nestled alongside the New River, about 3.5 miles from Green Valley School. In partnership with the National Committee for the New River, we purchased 7 acres adjacent to the original property, using funds provided through a grant from the Clean Water Management Trust Fund. Plans for most of that acreage involve protection of the native stream to reduce sedimentation in the river and establishment of a healthy vegetative buffer along the river and the stream.
