Soldiers from six different Army and Air Guard units constructed the park as part of their annual training during the course of the summer. The project was coordinated by the 28th Engineer Brigade based at Fort A.P. Hill. Other units participating were the 189th Engineer Battalion from Big Stone Gap, the 276th Engineer Battalion from Richmond, the 1030th and 1031st from Gate City, and the 229th Engineer Battalion from Fredricksburg. Also involved in the project were the 203rd Red Horse Flight for the Air National Guard and 3647th Maintenance Company from Blackstone.
