The trail was finished during the United Way’s Day of Action event, with artwork on the trail being hand painted by volunteers.

Angela Daniels, the regional engagement director for Tygart Valley United Way, said the games have been designed by experts to build early learning skills and capture children’s natural curiosity.

“It’s fun! Get out, it’s free, it’s something that doesn’t cost anything with the cost of living right now, and I know that a lot of my memories from childhood were with my family at a park,” Daniels said.
