Tucker Boulder Park is a collaborative, community effort. In addition to individual donors, the following corporate and civic stakeholders helped make the project possible: 

The Foundation developed the project proposal, assessed community support through a series of public meetings it facilitated, convened partners, identified stakeholders and dedicated staff time to grant writing and fund raising.

The Town of Davis provided the site for development of the park, sponsored numerous grants, and volunteers much time and effort in support of the project. The Town's P&R board has oversight of the ongoing maintenance and upkeep of the park. The board and Town Council determine the hours of operation and park rules.

Western Pocahontas Properties granted an easement for trail development. The property where the Davis Ball Field and Tucker Boulder Park are located was originally owned by Western Pocahontas Properties. They gifted it to the Town of Davis for recreational purposes in the 1980's.

The Dominion Foundation kicked off the fundraising effort with a $25,000 donation. A portion of that donation established the Tucker County EMS Fund.

Tucker Boulder Park has received major grant support from the West Virginia Department of Transportation Recreational Trail program and the Land and Water Conservation Fund program. Our thanks to Region VII and the West Virginia Development Office for their assistance and support.
