For Cross Creek County Park, natural gas development has brought tremendous benefits and much needed upgrades, all while protecting the environment.
When Washington County signed a lease with Range Resources to develop natural gas in Cross Creek County Park, the county and the company came together on two common goals: responsibly develop the resources under the 2,000-acre park, and provide maximum benefit to the taxpayers and residents of Washington County.
Recently, the county unveiled a brand-new walking trail. Just over three miles, the trail begins near the new Thompson Hill boat launch and playground area.
The walking trail is the culmination of a multi-year partnership between the county and Range Resources that has also included upgrades like new playgrounds, a new boat launch area, new pavilions, parking and restrooms in Cross Creek County Park and in other County parks.
