This volunteer run park has pretty surroundings with paths. These trails are easily walkable.. Flowers, plants, and lots of different mushrooms are there for one to peruse. It is really worth a look if in Morgantown, and especially if you are a nature lover!

The website made it seem like it was a botanical garden. Yes, eventually it will be one but they are still developing the plans for the construction. So pretty much it is swamp land with trails/boardwalk cut through it. It was a nice walk on...More

Our dog loves his walks along the trails of the WVBG! Don't expect it to be a pristine botanical garden with meticulously-tended beds and guides to direct you. Get a map and explore, there are so many different types of trails and gardens. We were...More

Yes, I have seen them there. I believe they have a leash mandate and a pet waste policy. It doesn't seem to be on their website. If you have additional questions contact Erin Smaldone (Education Director) at 304-216-8704.
