Friends of Breaks Park
Friends of Breaks Park is a non-profit organization offering support in the areas of conservation, recreational resources, and educational efforts at Breaks Interstate Park, as well as assisting the park in its endeavors in the preservation of our unique landscape.
Established by the U.S. Congress in 1954, Breaks Park is one of only two interstate parks in the United States–a testament to the uniqueness of this wonderful place. It encompasses 4,600 acres in Kentucky and Virginia, along the border of those two states.
Being an Interstate Park is a wonderful designation, but it also creates some unique challenges. While state parks receive 100 percent of their funding from their respective state governments, Breaks Interstate Park is administered differently. It only receives a total of 15 percent of its funding from the states of Kentucky and Virginia. As you can imagine, that presents problems in respect to making park upgrades, providing a variety of recreational and educational opportunities, and better promoting environmental stewardship. And that’s why Friends of Breaks Park was created–to help better serve our visitors, offer more services and opportunities, and to continue improving this wonderful park.
