Grand Vue Park Ramping Up for Busy Summer Season
MOUNDSVILLE — Grand Vue Park in Moundsville is gearing up for a busy summer season, according to park General Manager Craig White.
While most of the activities at the park are currently open on weekends, White said they will begin expanding their hours beginning Memorial Day weekend.
“We’re prepping for the RV park to come in, but in the meantime we’re redoing all the brake systems for all the lines on the ziplines,” White said.
Four ziplines included in the park’s aerial adventure tour will be open by Memorial Day weekend, White said, with the four remaining lines on the tour expected to open by July 4. In the meantime, White said visitors can still take advantage of the individual 2,100 foot zipline challenge.
White said the zipline brake system upgrades will allow the park to move a larger number of people through the adventure in a shorter time span.
“We turned the zipline over to a management company — that’s ‘Grand Vue Adventures’, so they’re handling all of that now,” White added.
In addition to offering a large variety of other park activities including paintball, mountain biking, disc golf, and miniature golf, the park made recent renovations to three of its luxury cabins with the addition of new decks and large hot tubs.
“The hot tubs are in place. They’re actually on the decks now and in use,” White commented. He said new fire pit areas have also been added outside of the cabins as part of upgrades.
White said with the arrival of new paintball equipment they are currently in the process of moving the paintball course over to the red barn area of the park in an effort to place it in a more accessible area of the park.
In addition, the Marshall County Park & Recreation Board and the Grand Vue Park leadership team recently announced plans for construction of the 40-site RV park. White expects construction to begin soon on the RV park and is hopeful it will open over the summer season. It will be located beyond the Vue Bar & Grill on a section of the former par-3 golf course. Each site will be 65 feet long and have an area for a tow vehicle and full hookups, water, electric, sewage, TV and wifi. A picnic area and firepit also come with each spot.
While the park’s swimming pool will be closed this season for renovation, White said the park plans to accommodate guests with swimming options by offering a shuttle service to other local swimming pools. The new pool is expected to be complete in time for the 2022 summer season.
