Picnic Shelters and Splash Park Canopies
There are a total of nine picnic shelters at Barboursville park, and three canopies adjacent to the Splash Park, all of which are available to rent by the day. The shelters and canopies are outfitted with trash cans, charcoal grills, and plenty of picnic space. When not reserved, the shelters and canopies are available to use on a first come-first served basis. Click Here to book one of our shelters or canopies
Barboursville’s fenced in splash park, open seasonally from 10:00 am until 8:00 pm, is comprised of several water features, spraying, shooting, pouring, and raining water down intermittently and constantly. Inside the fence there is a concrete pad, benches, and a grassy area perfect for drying off or having a picnic. If you’d rather have a picnic table, there are three canopied shelters at the splash park. These canopies can be rented for the day, during the open hours of the splash park at a rate of $100 each. Though they can be used on a first come-first served basis when not booked, making a reservation is strongly recommended. At this time there are no “after-hours” splash park rentals.
The Barboursville Park sports complex boasts 3 fully lined, regulation size turf fields, as well as 12 grass fields that can be booked for play or practice. These fields can also be converted to use for Lacrosse, Football, and Baseball or Softball infield practice. There is ample parking, and a smaller enclosed in soccer training field. One of the turf fields is also permanently lined for Football, has adjacent bleachers, a press box, and a scoreboard.
