Fredericksburg Parks and Recreation Director’s Fund

Jane Shelhorse, City resident and Director of Fredericksburg Parks, Recreation and Events, established the Fredericksburg Parks and Recreation Director’s Fund to benefit the city's park and recreation opportunities. Specifically, it is designated to enhance, expand or preserve parks and recreation facilities, programs and outdoor spaces to increase accessibility, improve social equity and provide opportunities for healthier, more fulfilling lifestyles for the citizens of Fredericksburg.

Anyone may support Fredericksburg parks and recreation opportunities by giving through the fund!

A special giving opportunity is available through October 2019.Tree on Alum Playground july 2019

Summer storms destroyed the playground at Alum Springs Park. This playground has been the play place for many, many children over the years. The City will be rebuilding it, but we would like to make it bigger, better and accessible to more children. To do so, we need your help!

We would like to use money contributed to the Fredericksburg Parks and Recreation Director’s Fund before October 15, 2019 to add additional play set pieces and ADA access to the Alum Springs Park playground so more children can enjoy the park.

Any donations collected after October 15, 2019 will be used for future projects that meet the goals of the fund. Donations to the fund are tax deductible."
