Cooke Park
Cooke Park was built on land donated by the William A. Cooke Foundation, honoring long-time local businessman William Cooke.  The project was completed with the support of Bruce and Jacqueline Gupton, who purchased and renovated a number of Mr. Cooke's downtown properties.

Cooke Park sits on Main Street in the heart of the shops and galleries of Gordonsville. It is a lovely place to sit and enjoy the calm surroundings of our community. 
Gordonsville Quarry
The Town of Gordonsville does not permit recreational use of the quarry at this time.
