Parks and Recreation

Picnic Pavilion
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
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.

Glass Museum
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.
