Project Description

The project will involve the renovation of a local park located at 11901 Claridge Road in Wheaton-Glenmont, Maryland.  The intent of the project is to develop an overall design and construct for the park.  Work will be implemented in phases as funds become available.

Background

The 21-acre local park is located along a wooded stream valley within the Rock Creek watershed.  Existing facilities include a park activity building, a basketball court, two bridges, natural surface trails and managed open space.  A playground was removed because the equipment was determined to be unsafe.  The amenities are surrounded by approximately 17 acres of forest with two streams running through the core area.  The plan considers moving paved facilities out of environmental buffers and provide the re-installation of a bridge and playground.  Additional work will improve natural surface trail and accessibility, upgrades to the park activity building, enhancements to stormwater management facilities and landscaping to the stream and forest edge.

Status/Project Update

Construction is completed.
