CHRISTIANSBURG, VA -

Town of Christiansburg news release

The Town of Christiansburg has signed a contract to purchase approximately 60 acres of land off of Route 114.  This property is also known as the Wilson property.

The intended usage of the property will primarily be a park for both passive and active recreation use, including playing fields and picnic shelters.  The contract purchase price is $2.5 million, which will be paid out of reserve funds.

According to Town Manager Barry Helms, "Purchasing this property is a good opportunity due to its proximity to the Huckleberry Trail and adjoining numerous residential developments, as well as the sheer size of the property."

Determining the exact usages and development of the property is expected to be a many year process and will be done in support of the Parks & Recreation Master Plan.
