DUMFRIES, Va. – Officials put shovels into dirt marking the start of construction of Ginn Park in Dumfries.

The new park will sit at 3876 Graham Park Road and will be built in two phases. Phase one will include playground equipment, a basketball court, a playing field, and a gravel parking lot. While it’s unclear when construction of phase two will begin, it is said to include a community center, a community plaza and amphitheater, tennis courts, a community garden, and a paved parking lot.

According to Dumfries’ website, the park could be open as early as July.

Dumfries Mayor Gerald Foreman,  Vice Mayor Willie J. Toney, and Councilmembers Kristen Forrester and Gwen Washington gathered on Friday, June 22, to break ground on the new park.

    I think this is wonderful for the residents in  the town of Dumfries. I would like to see some parks put on the other side of Route 1 for the residents that do not live with walking distant of Ginn park.
