  • 1. To The Citizens of Christiansburg Dear Friends and Neighbors: The fragrance of fresh cut grass and the sight of the beautiful flowers blooming indicates that spring is in the air. This is the perfect time to enjoy the recreational opportunities that the Town of Christiansburg has to offer! Your Christiansburg Parks and Recreation Department exists to promote and implement leisure programs and services that enhance the quality of life for all ages. In partnership with the community, we strive to deliver quality leisure programs in a personal, effective and successful manner. We serve you, the citizens of Christiansburg and our visiting neighbors, to provide a positive relationship while growing and building our special community. As you read through the brochure, you will find many recreational opportunities available that will provide quality experiences for you and your family. Reaching your specific recreational goals can be made possible through the many opportunities that are available. We offer many outdoor recreational adventures from hearing the crack of the bat at the Harkrader Sports Complex, to enjoying family time at our outdoor parks and playgrounds, to witnessing the sights and sounds of nature’s beauty while walking along the Huckleberry Trail. If you prefer to meet your recreational needs in an indoor setting, look no further than the Christiansburg Recreation Center. You can become actively fit with many community fitness programs, or decrease your stress while playing a friendly game of racquetball. Is developing a healthy lifestyle on your agenda? If so, please take advantage of our various educational classes and health screenings. Exercise is a very important part of a healthy lifestyle so be sure to exercise in our cardiovascular, weight and nautilus rooms or simply take a nice stroll on the 1/8 mile indoor track. Are you over the age of 50? Come and enjoy our seniors lounge, billiards room and covered patio. There are many Senior Center specific activities and events for you to become involved in. Looking for some exciting summer events? Please join our community as we celebrate the Annual Fourth of July Celebration. This evening will be filled with many exciting festivities and will be topped off with a spectacular fireworks demonstration that is sure to provide thrills for the entire family. The Harkrader Sports Complex will be the host site for the 2013 USSSA 10U, 11U and 12U Baseball World Series in mid-July. These baseball players will put their team’s skills and abilities to the test to earn the right to be named World Series Champions. I am excited to be completing my first year, here with you, in the Town of Christiansburg. I look forward to maintaining the recreational opportunities that are currently in place while also looking at future ways that we can better serve you and enhance your recreational experiences. I look forward to working with each of you to provide a positive relationship while growing and building our special community. Christiansburg is truly a progressive small town living at its best. Best wishes to each of you for a bright and beautiful spring and summer.
