Abstract

Located about 20 miles south of Fredericksburg, Bowling Green has been the County seat of Caroline County since 1803. The community of about 1,000 is rich in history which is evident from its many historic structures. The developer of a neighborhood donated two of the lots (roughly 2 acres) to the town’s Historic/Economic Leadership Panel (H.E.L.P.). This area includes a cemetery of five graves that was used from about the 1740’s to about 1880. H.E.L.P. wanted to develop the site into a small community park. The park would serve as an historic site and gathering place for neighborhood residents and community members. The Community Design Assistance Center (CDAC) worked with the community to create a design for the park.
