Project:
The Town of Warrenton is developing a Master Plan for Eva Walker Park. This plan will help determine the types of improvements desired for the park over the next several years. As part of this, the Town will be developing ideas on how to commemorate Eva Walker and her achievements in a garden as part of the park design. Rhodeside and Harwell, Inc. is leading the project with an Advisory Committee and Town staff.

Who is Eva Walker?

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 this
