Parks and Recreation
The Town of Star City maintains a picnic pavilion in Riverfront Park, just adjacent to the Monongahela River. The covered
pavilion has four 12 foot picnic tables and can accommodate approximately forty-fifty people. There is also a permanent charcoal
grill and electricity. The pavilion may be reserved for the day with payment of the $50.00 reservation fee. Please contact city
hall in order to reserve the picnic pavilion.
John F. Kennedy Memorial
Built as a memorial to "A Father's Love", this granite and cast bronze structure
was dedicated on June 17, 2007. Overlooking the Monongahela River, it is adjacent to the Mon
River Rail Trail, the Tugboat Depot Playground, and Riverfront Park.
Star City Veteran's Memorial
Dedicated on Memorial Day, May 31, 2011 this granite monument honors Star City's members of the
Armed Forces. Recently, a Fallen Soldier Monument (aka Battlefield Cross) statue was installed in the Veteran's area.
A bronze plaque honoring World War II Veterans which was originally located at City Hall has also been
placed at this location.
Tugboat Depot, a "community built" playground, was a collaborative effort of the
Town of Star City, Morgantown North Rotary, and local residents. Adjacent to the Mon River Rail
Trail, there are tables available for picnicking as well as modern restrooms.
The Star City Municipal Building hosts a modest collection of glassware on the main floor.
The acquisition of the collection was spearheaded by the late Merwin R. Davis, Jr. a long-time
Star City Councilman and former Mayor. Glassware produced in West Virginia is represented by
examples from Davis-Lynch Glass, Blenko Glass, Hinkle Glassworks, Morgantown Glass, Seneca
Glass, Gentile Glass, and Gibson Glass as well as glassware from several other sources.
