LYNCHBURG, Va. (WDBJ) - Lynchburg Parks and Recreation is celebrating the opening of a new facility Tuesday.

They will have a ribbon cutting for the new Solar Power Education Facility Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. The facility is inside Ivy Creek Park.

It contains an array of features about solar, and they’re developing a curriculum on solar power.
