dc.description.abstractThe downtown of Luray is a major hub for activities, festivals, and commerce within the small town. Ruffner's Plaza, located just off the greenway allows a public space for residents and visitors alike. The community area has become a place of year-round gathering, hosting summer concerts and fall festivals. [1] Taken from project application dated August 2012

Hoping to further enhance the Main Street, the Town is proposing to add a pocket park located adjacent to Main Street in the Town center. Luray would like the park to be a gathering place for residents and tourists to fish, relax, and enjoy Hawksbill Creek and the Greenway, both of which are immediately adjacent to the property. The existing bridge is in the preliminary planning stages of renovation. Therefore, the pocket park design could be partnered with that project to help transform the downtown as well.

Upon visiting the overgrown site with several Town leaders, the CDAC team members realized the great potential of the pocket park to act as a natural focal point and fishing node for downtown visitors.
