Culpeper Renaissance, Inc. Announces a New Downtown Beautification Project - Posted on February 11, 2016

To better reflect the open and inviting atmosphere of Downtown, Culpeper Renaissance has partnered with the Wood family to give back to Culpeper.  For many months now, the property at 118 North Main Street has been an empty lot.  The current state of the property does not reflect the vibrancy of Downtown Culpeper.  The Wood family has graciously donated the use of their property to CRI in order to build a pocket park.

This pocket park, which will be named “E. B. Wood Community Park”, will add much desired recreational space to our Downtown. A dedicated committee has been formed to head up this project. These volunteers will work to make sure that the community park fits the aesthetic of our Downtown, grants are found to move the project forward, and donations are solicited from our Community. Currently, plans are underway for design and construction.

Beginning this month, we will ask the residents of Culpeper for their valuable input towards this unique feature. Whether this input is through donations, time, or effort, we are proud to partner with the Wood family and the residents of Culpeper to continue to beautify our Downtown.
