The park board has 11 members who serve six-year staggered terms and are not paid for their service. One member always represents Westmoreland. The other 10 members represent Cabell County districts, though no more than two park board members may serve from the same district. The board sets policy and makes decisions for the park system, which includes more than 1,400 acres of parks in Cabell County and part of Wayne County. It also oversees four cemeteries.
