Responding to public support for a community park at New Market, a citizens committee was formed to raise $150,000 of the estimate $236,000 cost of the project. In this newspaper photo from the 1970s, C. W. (Jim) Long (right), a contributor and planner for the park project, and Allen Johnson, president of Citizens National Bank and chairman of the park fund drive, pose to promote the campaign. Using a grant from the Virginia Commission on Outdoor Recreation and local donations, the park opened on a 13-acre site with a swimming pool, tennis courts and picnic areas.
