A rendering of the future stage.

The City of Fredericksburg has received a $1.2 million federal grant to help construct a performance stage and restrooms at the recently opened Riverfront Park downtown.

The grant is funded through the Economic Development Administration’s $240 million competitive American Rescue Plan Travel, Tourism, and Outdoor Recreation program, which is designed to accelerate the recovery of communities that rely on the travel, tourism and outdoor recreation sectors.

The $1.2 million federal grant will be matched with $300,000 in local funds. Riverfront Park, which is between Sophia Street and the Rappahannock River, was designed with a future stage and restrooms in mind. Plumbing and electrical connections are already in place where the stage and restrooms will be installed.
