From the Department of Natural Resources:
Recreational projects in Allegany, Anne Arundel, Caroline, Cecil, Dorchester, Frederick, Harford, Wicomico, Worcester and Washington Counties will soon receive funding for necessary upgrades and additions through Program Open Space. Governor Martin O’Malley and the Board of Public Works approved the projects at today’s meeting in Annapolis.
“We are continually working to evaluate existing play areas and develop new ones so that all Maryland families have the opportunity to enjoy safe and easily accessible outdoor recreational spaces,” said Governor O’Malley.
Harford County’s Town of Bel Air will receive $200,000 to improve Plumtree Park with new play equipment and safety surfacing that meets current national playground safety standards. In addition, the project will correct water drainage issues, develop recreational opportunities for the growing senior population and install park amenities associated with the project.
Harford County’s City of Aberdeen will receive $100,000 to design and install a splash pad and ground jet sprays of various shapes and sizes at Aberdeen Festival Park.
