News Flash_Outdoor Classroom_Aug18_2023

The Freedom Park Outdoor Classroom, Parks & Recreation’s newest park amenity, is open at Freedom Park, 5537 Centerville Rd. The classroom features 10 locally sourced white oak benches from the Carters Grove Orchard Road that seat at least 40 people and a white-board kiosk. 
The space can be reserved daily, 9 a.m. – 8 p.m. (or until the park closes) for public and private groups looking to enjoy a unique learning environment. The rental rate is $20/hour; a one-hour minimum is required for all reservations. Use of the white-board kiosk is allowed only with reservations. A park instructor or historical interpreter may be requested for your group reservation at an additional rate of $20/hour. Staff will only be provided should availability allow.

The project was made possible through the Virginia Department of Forestry’s Urban and Community Forestry Grant Program along with over 110 hours of volunteer support. To reserve the area, call 757-259-4200 or check out the Outdoor Classroom Request Form.
