FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 6, 2018
ELKTON, MD. -- Parks & Recreation Director Clyde Van Dyke announced today that temporary parking facilities are nearing completion allowing for the north side of the Brantwood Park area to open for passive recreational use only beginning Wednesday, August 15th.
Passive recreation activities include running, walking, hiking, bicycling, bird and nature observation, as well as fishing. Visitors are welcome to bring their pets but are asked to curb their animals and properly dispose of waste.
"With the support of the administration, my staff put in a tremendous amount of effort to get this portion of Brantwood open to the public. The parking area was the biggest obstacle and the weather did not cooperate much, but once we recognized that it was almost finished, we knew it was time for a soft opening," explained Van Dyke.
"We invite folks to come down and explore the area on the north side. The former golf cart paths provide great walkways and running trails. There is still a lot of work to be done and we will add or improve amenities going forward."
The parking area, constructed of eco-friendly geo-grid, can be accessed via Williams Road. Parking on the south side of the park is strictly prohibited and violators may be towed at the owner's expense. The park will be available from dawn to dusk and patrons are asked to please use the trash receptacles on-site.
