PARKS COMMITTEE PAGE
Help re-open the Harundale-Oakwood Park Community Parks !
Guildford Road Park
Future plans include restored basketball court(s), a softball court, walking paths, park benches and picnic tables, and a community center. Input is needed on what the community would like, the phases for the park restoration, and volunteers to help acquire community, business and AA county government financial backing to make the restoration possible. Not to mention the volunteers that will be needed to participate in the restoration efforts.

 

The picnic and children’s area is expected to be installed and ready for use by May this year.

The local Boy Scouts of America troop #670 installed a foot bridge across the stream in 2002 and in the near future the county will begin the stream restoration work on the streams running through the park. Any troops or youth groups interested in community service please contact HOPCA as we’re always happy for the volunteers and could use the help. There are many walking paths that need restoration.

The upper fields will be cut soon. Though they were not utilized during the 2002 baseball season by a sports league, it is our hope to have a Youth Sports League in there for the 2003 season. The fields are always available for community use for frisbee, football, baseball or softball. Go take a look and considering planning your next family outing at the park.

The Park Committee is still looking for volunteers to work on the restoration efforts. Please call HOPCA (410-553-0174).

Saunder’s Way Park
HOPCA has re-opened the community park located off of Saunder’s Way (between 1407 and 1501). Thanks to all of the hard work by the volunteers and the Civic Association.

In an ongoing effort to keep with the times and make improvements to the park areas, we have elected to replace the teeter totters with new equipment geared towards the “outdoor fitness” theme. Look for these new improvements in the upcoming weeks.

Thanks to everyone who has been doing their part to keep this area cleaned up and functioning well.

With a bright new look on the park, work has began on the upgrades. While working it has been great to hear the positive feedback from passers by not only from the neighbors but from the B&A trail users as well! We hope to have this completed within the next week or so.

The park is a wonderful stop off while walking the B&A Trail, visiting family or friends or just walking the neighborhood. Be sure to stop by and take a look and as always, please help do your part to keep the park safe and enjoyable for all by using the park responsibly, putting trash in the receptacles provided and reporting any questionable activities to the local police!
