Current Stage: Construction
Virgil Park construction is anticipated to begin in the fall of 2023.
The project has received a Land and Water Conservation Fund grant from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and National Park Service for $367,932. In addition to its connection to the popular B&O Trail and the planned trailhead amenities and play features, the new park will serve an essential ecological function for the community. The park will protect existing wetlands on the property that serves as an important resource for water quality and habitat for native species, including waterfowl. The 6.7 acres will also promote prairie and woodland growth and habitat for critical pollinators.
