Frederick seeks public input for proposed park
The public is invited to give feedback on conceptual designs for the proposed Snowden Bridge Park. Frederick County Parks and Recreation will host the meeting at Stonewall Elementary School on Jan. 28 at 6:30 p.m. to hear public opinion.
The $3.6 million park is slated to be developed at 692 Old Charles Town Road in Stephenson. Plans for the park call for four multipurpose rectangular ballfields, a playground, picnic pavilion, concession building and restroom. The fields may be used for soccer, football, lacrosse and rugby. Roughly 200 parking spaces are included in the design. The multipurpose fields are envisioned to be built with either artificial turf surfacing at initial build out or natural turf with the potential to convert to artificial turf in the future.
Park officials likely will not move forward with the final design phase until the Frederick County Board of Supervisors decides if it will fund the park’s construction.
