The plan area consists of 11 acres, the entire area of Frederick Heights Park, much of which is rolling open field. Existing amenities include a playground and a ½ basketball court. Comments are welcome to determine the final plan outcome.
Frederick County Parks and recreation maintains the 11 acre parcel to include regular mowing and upkeep of the playground and basketball court. In order to increase public value of the park, an initial vision of potential improvements has been developed. Recognizing walking trails as the number one identified need for Frederick County residents, the primary proposed new amenity is a 0.5 mile shared use path. this path would provide access to the existing amenities and continue in a loop to take advantage of the majority of the park area. An accompanying small parking area on the park property would provide off street parking for park visitors.
