Outdoor Recreation

If adventure is on your mind, our outdoor recreation department can lead you in the right direction. More than just a hike in the woods, this department is led by a core of well-experienced staff members who have spent countless hours recreating in Roanoke’s scenic wilderness and waterway playgrounds. Roanoke Outdoor Recreation provides trips and instructional clinics for adults, families, youth, seniors, and groups with special needs.

All of these challenging and educational opportunities can be found in our quarterly issue of PLAY Magazine, and we think you’ll be pleasantly pleased that the price won’t knock your hiking socks off either.

Come experience the nature of Roanoke with our outdoor education staff!

Are you looking for a customized experience? We can do that too! Our Outdoor Recreation staff will work with individual groups to customize any outdoor experience based on the group’s goals and skill level.
