DEPARTMENT HISTORY

The Bedford County Parks and Recreation Department (BCPRD) was created by the Board of Supervisors on March 27, 1984 in order that a formal administration of public recreational activities could begin. Since its creation, the BCPRD has addressed the leisure needs of the County with available resources and with the intent of providing a wide range of recreational activities for all aspects of Bedford County's population.

Over the years, a great deal of emphasis has been placed upon developing and administering strong youth sports' programs. Lease agreements are maintained with the Bedford County School Board, civic clubs, and athletic associations throughout the County in order that fields and gymnasiums are available for the various youth activities offered throughout the County. The BCPRD coordinates through, and collaborates with, 10 different recreation associations throughout Bedford County to provide the various youth activities. Each association is represented by an Association Supervisor that is contracted through and paid by the County to provide assistance, and to serve as a liaison between the BCPRD and their respective local association.

Included in the Department's youth sports offerings are: football, cheerleading, soccer, wrestling, tee-ball, baseball, softball, basketball, and tennis. Additionally, various sport's camps may be offered throughout the year.

Currently, adult co-ed softball is offered in the fall. A variety of activities, with a primary emphasis on the County's senior population, including, a senior softball team, lunch trips and day trips to various points of interest are offered. Bingo is another activity that is offered and enjoyed by many local seniors. 

Special events are also offered throughout the year, such as an Easter Egg Hunt, Youth Fishing Clinic, Breakfast with Santa, Elder-fest, disc golf tournaments, skateboarding competitions and mountain bike races.

With the move of BCPRD to the Old Nursing Home facility, additional programming opportunities present themselves and additional space has been secured throughout the county as we continue to broaden program offerings. Details can be found throughout our website.

Our history continues and we invite you to be a part of it and to” Experience the Benefits.”
