Located at the head of 4 Mile Creek Road, Branchland, West Virginia, Branchland Park is among the most pleasant and accessible points on the Guyandotte River. Home of the annual "Guyandotte River Regatta," as well as a number of other communal activities, such as picnicking and water recreation.
Backstory and Context
For many years, the site was known to locals as a "sore thumb" in the area due to the lack of upkeep and attraction of shady activity. This changed in the year 2013 when members from the community came together in an effort to restore the site. It was a process, but after countless hours of volunteer work the site was beautifully restored and ultimately named "Branchland Park."
Branchland Park is home to a number of communal activities, such as picnicking and water recreation, which certainly includes the annual Guyandotte River Regatta, beginning in year 2013. That being a kayak/canoe/jon boat race, starting at the park and ending roughly five miles down stream in West Hamlin, West Virginia.
