Hurricane Bridge Park

Recreational Opportunities

This new park is divided into two areas. The Midland Trail side has an incredible youth football complex and practice field and is home to the Hurricane Youth Football League. It also has three lighted pickleball courts and an amazing wooden playground. The upper level, which is accessible by the park’s main entrance by First Baptist Church of Hurricane, features the Putnam County Bank Sports Complex which consists of four tournament-ready baseball and softball fields with a press box and concession stand along with an all-inclusive playground and a 36-hole disc golf course designed by world-renowned disc golfer, Johnny Sias. It will eventually feature walking trails, deluxe shelters, an amphitheater and much more.

Arts & Entertainment

Along with athletic and recreational opportunities, the park will one day feature dedicated space for the arts and entertainment. Multiple deluxe shelters will be constructed to offer large event space along with an amphitheater that can be utilized for concerts, performances and other events.

Athletic Facilities

Providing more athletic facilities is a big need in the Hurricane and surrounding areas. These facilities will give great opportunities to athletic teams in need of practice and game space. These fields, in conjunction with fields at Valley Park and Hurricane City Park, offer the ability for Hurricane to host large travel league tournaments and other large sporting events which will be a boost to our local hotels, restaurants, etc.

Fundraising

Any businesses or organizations that have an interest in becoming involved in this project through naming rights, we have many opportunities available. For more information, call City Hall at (304) 562-5896.

Caboose

Situated in Hurricane City Park, the Caboose Museum is an actual retired C&O Railcar. It is filled with railroad memorabilia and artifacts that depict the City’s railroad history.

Meeks Mountain Trails

Meeks Mountain is a trail system project that began in November 2018 after discussion at a Hurricane Development Authority meeting. The mission was to build and sustain a network of trails for the health and well-being of the people and to create additional opportunities for economic growth. Parking for the trails is in Hurricane City Park. The trailhead is located near the Caboose in the lower side of the park. Click here for more information.

Main Street

Main Street in Hurricane is a vibrant  and revitalized area of downtown with lots of local shops and restaurants to frequent.  Several City-hosted events take place on Main Street throughout the year. There’s always plenty to see and do in downtown Hurricane.
