Cumberland County, with all of its natural and historic resources, offers an unbelievable opportunity for residents and visitors alike to experience the beauty and history of this great County. Opportunities abound for kayaking along the James and Appomattox Rivers, experiencing the history of America’s first call for freedom, hiking the trails at Bear Creek Lake State Park, and experiencing our open space upon the High Bridge Trail. In addition to these great outdoor experiences, the Cumberland County Parks and Recreation department is busy planning for new and enhanced facilities as well as installing new programs and enhancing existing programs that will positively impact the quality of life of our residents. So come on Cumberland County! Discover your own backyard, discover your Independence, discover Cumberland County.
Sincerely, Derek Stamey, County Administrator
