The purpose of this project was to develop a conceptual master plan update for the Pearisburg Town Park that benefits families, seniors, and youth and improved the quality of life by building community pride and contributing to the tourism economy of Pearisburg. Additionally, the town sought to create the opportunity for an adult league baseball/ softball facility on a nearby undeveloped town property on Tannery Road by the New River. The town envisioned creating a recreational complex of facilities with updated features for every stage of life with a focus on updating their youth sports fields and supporting facilities. It was envisioned that the Pearisburg Town Park become a location where youth baseball and softball clubs could play, train, and host regional tournaments. The park’s open space, mature shade trees, walking trail, and bird watching would continue to offer the town and Giles County a clean, well-maintained nature park. Additionally, the town was interested in exploring the possibility of including the following elements: two youth baseball/softball fields, one adult baseball field, t-ball field, batting cages, spectator and farmer’s market shade structures, relocating concessions and restrooms, beach volleyball court, dog park, kids splash park, picnic pavilion, expanding on nature identification programs, outdoor stage, and improved parking.
