The Moneta park is located in a currently, sparsely populated area of the County, within relatively close proximity to Smith Mountain Lake and in an area of the County that will likely see a great deal of continued development and population growth in the near future. Located conveniently off of Route 122, Rucker Road, this park is situated on an amazing site with spectacular views. Less than 50 acres of the park’s approximately 119 acres have been developed and expectations are that much of this park site can remain in its natural state with a large open pasture and areas of woodland.
The initial phase of development of Moneta Park has been completed and includes:
- 2 multi-use ball fields (baseball, softball, soccer)
- Tee-ball field
- 1 football/soccer field
- 18 Hole Disc Gold Course
- Picnic shelter are in place and a restroom facility is nearing completion.
Future Expansion & Development
- A trail system is being developed within the park for walkers, hikers, mountain bikers and others. As funding permits, further development of the park will take place.
- Local foundations, civic clubs and citizens have generously donated a great amount of their time and money to the park’s development.
The late Smyth Meador and the James A. Meador Foundation were instrumental in the purchase and development of the park land and a memorial to him and recognition to other contributors is provided within the park.
