Project

The Town of Warrenton developed a Master Plan for Eva Walker Park. This plan determines the types of improvements desired for the park over the next several years. As part of this, the Town will commemorate Eva Walker and her achievements in a garden as part of the park design. Rhodeside and Harwell, Incorporated led the project with an Advisory Committee and Town staff.

You know the park. You enjoy the location. But do you know who Eva Walker was? Or that her family is still active in the community?

A commemorative garden with interpretive panels will be installed at the park to ensure we all appreciate Eva Walker’s contributions for generations to come through an AARP grant. To learn more about Eva Walker, check out the Piedmont Lifestyle magazine article for details!
