War Memorial Park

North Tennessee Ave., Martinsburg

City-owned; 19.5 acres.

War Memorial Park is the gem stone of Berkeley County’s 16 public parks. Maintained and operated by the Martinsburg-Berkeley County Parks & Recreation Board, War Memorial Park offers a tremendous variety of facilities and programs, by far, Berkeley County’s heaviest used facility.

The center of the park is dedicated to honoring Berkeley County war veterans. The park’s facilities include a wonderful seasonal pool and bath house, six pavilions, two tennis courts, two sand volleyball courts, three public restrooms, an 18 hole miniature golf course, concession stand, and numerous playgrounds and picnic areas.

War Memorial ParkAdditionally, the covered concert stage is an inviting structure for numerous activities. The rolling 20 acres is full of beautiful trees providing much shade and color to the park. Limestone rock breaks add to its mystique and on the north end flows the Tuscarora Creek, used for trout fishing and wading.

The pavilions are booked solid all summer long and the pool gets tremendous use during public hours and private rentals from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. Parks & Recreation offers its swim lessons program at this facility each summer with over 1,200 registrations per summer.

Other events include a 12 week summer concert series free to the public and a six week summer playground site for children 6-12 years of age.

Special events include annual Memorial Day Program, June Jubilee, July Fourth Celebration and Labor Day Breakfast.

The bath house multi-purpose building is home to the Berkeley County Board of Education Preschool program during the school year.

The park became a public park in 1947 and in 1987 was deeded to the City of Martinsburg to be maintained by the Martinsburg-Berkeley County Parks and Recreation Board.
