Shenandoah County Parks and Recreation Department was founded in 1974 by the Shenandoah County Board of Supervisors. The development of Shenandoah County Park happened 1983 and is approximately 67.5 acres, situated along Route 11 between Maurertown and Toms Brook.
From the time the park was established to present day, it has seen many improvements. Currently, the park’s facilities include three softball fields, two sand volleyball courts, two tennis courts, one basketball court, 18-hole disc golf course, two picnic shelters with grills, a mile long paved walking trail, three gazebos, a marker denoting the Alms House and two restroom facilities.
