Cacapon State Park Playground Equipment
This playground equipment and area are dedicated to the sterling young men of the Civilian Conservation Corps and their resourceful leaders. We wish to pay special tribute to the contributions of Paul D. Myers and his stalwart crew of stoneworkers. They laid the stonework foundations for Cacapon State Park that have passed the test of time. The young men of the Civilian Conservation Corps rose above the "Great Depression" and confirmed beyond doubt that the human spirit could not be crushed. The numerous state and national parks constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps that dot our countryside serve as a fitting and lasting memorial to their outstanding work. It is a legacy of richness that succeeding generations will treasure forever.
This project was made possible through contributions and donations to the Cacapon State Park Foundation which was founded in 1989.
Erected by Cacapon State Park Foundation.
