Verling Park Concept Design:
In 2017, The Piedmont Environmental Council was able to retain Land Planning & Design Associates to develop a concept design for a revamped Verling Park. The plan incorporated input from local residents in Gordonsville who want to see a more functional park that serves the whole community. We are currently working to enable the Town to bring the plan to reality!
The Town to Trail initiative, working with interested community members, was able to secure funds to help the Town purchase 112 Linney Street and expand the park to an entire town block. Special thanks to all of you who stepped forward for this effort!
