 Friday Prayer in a village

Hadith

Ibn “Abbas said:

The first Friday prayer  offered in Islam after the Friday prayer offered in the mosque of the  Allah’s Messenger (saws) is Friday prayer offered at Juwatha, a village from the villages of al-Bahrain.
 The narrator “Uthman (ra) said: it is a village from the village of the tribe of “Abd al-Qais.

Sahih (Al-Albani)

Sunan Abi Dawud 1068
In-book : Book 2, Hadith 679

* This Hadith proves that the Friday prayer be established in all settled places.There is no text to prove that the Friday prayer can not be held in  small villages.
It is clearly​ mentioned in the hadith that
The first Friday prayer  offered in Islam after the Friday prayer offered in the mosque of the  Allah’s Messenger (saws) is Friday prayer offered at Juwatha, a village from the villages of al-Bahrain
 
So if in any town there​ is a mosque in which people offer regularl Prayer (5 times a day) in Congregation then there, people should offer obligatory Friday Prayer in Congregation
So similarly Friday Prayer can be offered at any place where there are significant number of Muslims, and
If Mosque (where regular Prayer is offered) is far away and it is difficult to reach there, so they can offer obligatory Friday prayer at a clean place like park etc
