StoryWalk at Chet Hobert Park
The Clarke County Education Foundation (CCEF) in partnership with Clarke County Public Schools and Clarke County Parks and Recreation unvieled a STEM StoryWalk™ on Friday, June 17, 2022 at 6:30p.m. Chet Hobert Park in honor of our 30th Birthday!
The StoryWalk™ Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition (VBPC) and the Kellogg Hubbard Library. This project is being funded by the Clarke County Education Foundation as a gift to the Clarke County community in celebration of the CCEF’s 30th Anniversary. The StoryWalk™ has 20 signs placed along the 2-mile fitness trail, each with a page of the book to read and discussion prompts. The signs are a permanent fixture in the park and will be changed at least three times per year for the community to enjoy.
Clarke County Parks & Recreation manages county-owned Chet Hobert Park, a 102-acre property west of Berryville. The park includes an outdoor swimming pool, 6 lighted outdoor tennis courts, 6 baseball-softball fields, 5 picnic shelters, 2 playgrounds, a 2-mile fitness trail, a dog park, and 13 soccer fields of various sizes. The Clarke County Recreation Center has exercise equipment, a gymnasium, meeting rooms, and kitchen. One room serves as the Clarke County Senior Center, offering programming and lunch for seniors four days each week.
