Concept design for Fredericksburg’s Riverfront Park ready for review

riverfront park 2

Fredericksburg’s Riverfront Park is taking shape.

The city’s Riverfront Park Task Force recently signed off on the concept design for the park that will be located on 3.6 acres along Sophia Street beside Shiloh (Old Site) Baptist Church.

The site overlooks the Rappahannock River and the design takes several steps to highlight that natural feature including having multiple paths that lead to the riverfront and a feature that provides a safe overlook.

The next step for the project is a work session with the city’s Architectural Review Board on Aug. 4. That meeting will be held at 7 p.m. in a second floor conference room of City Hall, 715 Princess Anne St.

I’ll have more details soon.
