If the progress on the lot near the library in Montross is any indication, it will soon have its first true modern park, possibly even in time for when First Fridays events roll in this summer.

Unveiled in June of 2021, the idea was to convert the unused lot next to the Montross branch of the Rappahannock Regional Library into a nice little park for the benefit of the public. Once the playground equipment, sidewalks, and pavilions are installed, the town will have a plot of land that can be used for anything from yoga in the park to a music venue.
