Gov. Martin O’Malley yesterday announced Board of Public Works approval of recreational projects in nine counties, including Garrett, and Baltimore City through Program Open Space and the Community Parks and Playgrounds Program.
“These dedicated programs and funding sources allow us to continue to provide accessible recreational opportunities that are close to home for Maryland’s working families,” said O’Malley. “Increasing availability of safe outdoor spaces for children also helps instill values of awareness and responsibility in our next generation of stewards.”
Oakland will receive $16,000 to upgrade the gymnasium floor and lighting in the Community Center (former National Guard Armory).
Deer Park will receive $75,000 to construct a restroom at the Community Park. There are currently no public restrooms located within the park, which consists of a playground area, basketball court, and a pavilion.
