There’s a new place to explore the beauty of The Natural State – the Wilson Family Nature Park in Greenbrier. Twelve years ago, Fred Wilson donated land to the town of Greenbrier, stipulating a part of it be preserved as a natural space. Wilson wanted a place for families to enjoy the wood, wildlife watch and view wildflowers. That stipulation is now a reality, providing Greenbrier a special area for outdoors lovers and school children to learn about their environment.

All the work done was by Lynn Tubbs and Luke Jones, members of the street department, according to Greenbrier Mayor Melton Cotton. The results are a 1,310-foot- long, six-foot-wide trail. Three rustic wooden bridges span low water areas and four wooden benches provide resting places. Jungle bars and playground equipment are to be added in the near future. The trail begins at the end of Business Park Road, just east of U.S. 65. The park lies between Babbling Brook on the east and is north of Wilson Farm Road.
