Culpeper Sports Complex
The County’s new sports complex is located just a few minutes away from downtown Culpeper at the junction of Route 29 and Local Route 666, making it accessible to residents of Culpeper and neighboring counties. The 59-acre complex currently contains 16 playable football, baseball, softball and soccer fields, however, plans are also in the works for more amenities including concessions, restrooms, a possible pool, basketball courts and playground equipment. A new walking trail, located by the Little League baseball fields, winds its way through the trees and along the dam of the retention pond. Boasting a picnic table and grill, and several sitting benches, there are plenty of places to enjoy a quiet moment. Be sure and check out the Five Senses Garden, designed to benefit the special needs population. This unique garden contains five raised beds with vegetation that can be identified by ones who’ve lost a sense. In Spring 2014, a new trail, “Connor’s Trail” opened for public use. The trail is located north past the entrance of the youth baseball complex, and winds through the park’s natural environment, bypassing the Five Senses Garden and skirting both passive and active park grounds.
