Fredericksburg was recently recognized as having the best quality of life for a city of our size in Virginia. One of the factors was the city’s trails, parks, and most recently, the addition of the multipurpose Fred Nats stadium now under construction. Expanding recreational opportunities contributes to our quality of life. As we move forward on the planning for recreational improvements in the future, we need to start looking for sources of funding beyond city tax dollars.
