[ARCHIVED] Ideas Sought for Improvements to Long Point Park

Long Point Playground Websize

Queen Anne’s County Parks and Recreation is retiring the large dinosaur playground at Long Point Park due to age related safety issues. While tentative plans are to replace it with a pavilion and picnic tables, the department’s director, Steve Chandlee, would like to use this opportunity to solicit ideas from citizens who use the park.  

 “If you have an idea, please email your suggestions to and with the subject line as “Long Point Park Ideas.” We will keep this topic open for 30 days,” said Chandlee.

   For many years, the citizens have enjoyed the use of  this playground located right off of Route 50. “But like all things, we must make a change in order to keep our parks safe,” said Chandlee.  “Our parks are inspected monthly by our Playground Safety Inspector Cole Coursey, who is a certified Playground Safety Inspector. Coursey inspects all playground equipment located in county parks and at county schools.

  Cole Coursey is certified through the National Parks and Recreation and the Consumer Product Safety Commission. It is an industry-leading certification program in playground safety, the Certified Playground Safety Inspector certification program. The CPSI certification program provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date training on playground safety issues including hazard identification, equipment specifications, surfacing requirements and risk management methods. Our inspector must be recertified every three years to keep up with current trends in the industry.
