Welcome to the web site for the Fredericksburg Riverfront Park project! Please check back regularly for updated information on the Riverfront Park design process, including the latest project documents and information about upcoming opportunities to participate in the design process.

The City of Fredericksburg has initiated efforts to design and construct the new Riverfront Park, which will be a significant new public space in downtown Fredericksburg. In 2011, the City of Fredericksburg acquired the former Masonic Lodge riverfront property at 609 Sophia Street. This acquisition increased the amount of contiguous City-owned land along the riverfront and creates new opportunities for a beautiful outdoor amenity and attraction along the banks of the Rappahannock River. The City has established a Riverfront Task Force to guide the design process from an initial park vision to preliminary design options to final concept design.

Tell us your vision for the Riverfront Park! The City and Riverfront Task Force encourage members of the Fredericksburg community to share their ideas for Riverfront Park design and to provide input throughout the design process. Two public open houses will provide opportunities to help guide the design process and offer feedback on design concepts. The Fredericksburg community is also encouraged to submit comments via the comment form.   

The public was invited to attend two public open houses in March 2014 and late April/early May 2014 to learn about the status of the design process, brainstorm ideas for the park, and provide input on initial Riverfront Park design concepts.

Final Concept Plan - July 12, 2016
