From Harford County government:
The Harford County Department of Parks and Recreation, in cooperation with Harford County Department of Public Works, and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources are preparing to upgrade and improve the existing Friends Parks Pond. This project will improve the overall water quality of the pond and the stream that is fed by the pond. The work will improve the pond to current environmental standards and will include a new boardwalk and fishing pier.
Parks and Recreation anticipates the work to begin after April 15 and the project will take five to six months to complete. During the construction period, there will be no access to the pond and the immediate surrounding area. The athletic fields and larger parking lot, which also serves the Ma & Pa trail, will remain open.
The Department of Parks and Recreation looks forward to the improvements to the pond that will better serve the community from both an environmental and recreational standpoint.
