Plans for the New Haymarket Community Park in Haymarket VA look good!
If you haven’t heard yet, there is a new recreational park coming to downtown Haymarket that’s in early stages of development. It was recently named the Haymarket Community Park. The location of the park, formerly the Harrover Property, is on Town of Haymarket property.
Here’s a little background. The town purchased this property from private owners (the Harrovers) in 2005 in an effort to preserve a portion of diminishing open space. The land was the site of two craftsman-style homes built in the 1920s. They were the previous locations of the Haymarket Police Station and the Haymarket Regional Food Pantry, both which have been relocated in town.
After some research, these homes were identified as Lewis Manufacturing Kit Homes from the 1920s and are listed as contributing resources to the Town’s old and historic Haymarket overlay districts. The two homes, with their unique architectural details, will remain a part of the Haymarket community. One of the buildings, the original La Vitello model, was purchased by a private owner and moved just two lots over. It has been restored and is now the home of Cookies and Cream! The other will remain on the property and will be renovated into a park building with restrooms and offices in the new Haymarket Community Park.
The proposed park plans, slated to be executed in three phases over the next several years, include a pavilion building for multi-use. The architectural details for the new park buildings will conform to the structural look and feel of the existing Lewis Homes.

The current park design also features an amphitheater, light recreation courts, a winding loop walking trail and two gazebos. As of now, there are picnic tables set up to begin the transition.
You can visit the Town of Haymarket website for the full project report and proposal, which includes the approved park diagram as shown above and previous proposals. The Haymarket Community Park will be a wonderful addition to our community!
