Those who like to run in Pasadena may soon get a new place to jog.
Anne Arundel County will receive $438,000 to develop a rubberized track (five lanes wide by 220 yards long) for the Adaptive Recreation Complex at Lake Waterford Park, according to a press release form the Maryland Department of Natural Resources.
On March 21, Gov. Martin O’Malley announced that Program Open Space will provide funding for recreational projects in Anne Arundel and Carroll Counties, approved by the Board of Public Works (BPW).
“These recreational areas afford our children important opportunities to get outside and safely enjoy their natural world,” Gov. O’Malley said in a release.
The track at Lake Waterford will complement the rubberized baseball field and the ADA-accessible playground that are currently being enjoyed by park visitors.
According to a release, under the leadership of O’Malley, the BPW has approved funding for 1,064 recreational projects, including Community Parks & Playgrounds, totaling over $301.7 million through local-side Program Open Space since 2007.
