Marktplatz (Market Square)


October 18, 2021 Update:
After much anticipation, the City of Fredericksburg is pleased to announce the Marktplatz Playground is expected to be open by the end of October. An official grand opening and ribbon cutting will be scheduled later this year. 

The most present Fredericksburg City Park is right in the center of Fredericksburg. This park surrounds on all sides one of the most revered treasures of the City, the Vereins Kirche. The octagonal shaped building was the site of the first church and the first school in Fredericksburg. Marktplatz hosts festivals, concerts and an ice skating rink in the holiday season. Marktplatz offers a gathering space, a playground for children and places for a picnic.
