Grand Vue Park has just announced some expansions that will create between 30-and-40 new jobs for people in the Ohio Valley.
The expansions are also welcomed news for the outdoors enthusiasts.
The park plans to add new tree house style cabins, a high rope course, rock wall, giant swing, and trampoline all in an effort to make the park one of the ultimate outdoor adventure destinations in the area.
“We’re really excited! We needed something that was going to be that small endeavor for people to come and stay, but we wanted it to be unique and we all went through and thought about it and the tree house concept is real big on tree house masters and everything else, so we’re using that concept,” said Grand Vue Park General Manager, Craig White.
With the addition of the new tree house cabins, it will bring the total to 12 cabins available for guests to book and enjoy the hills of Marshall County.
People in and around the Moundsville area were thrilled to hear the news.
“I think it’s great for around here. It’s better than businesses shutting down. So thirty to forty new jobs can actually help out some families around here,” said Billy Blumenhauer.
“People around here, they got places to go and places to stay and why not? It’s a good thing. It draws more business and I think that is good,” said Sherry Curitti.
“Updating the park is a great idea and creating jobs is an excellent idea and I’d love to see it,” said Dessie Grey.
Park officials say work should begin on the project some time next month.
