County Commissioners Greenlight an Array of Parks and Recreation Projects in Queen Anne's County
In an effort to promote healthier and more active communities, the County Commissioners of Queen Anne's County have given the go-ahead to several exciting Parks and Recreation projects. These initiatives, presented by the Parks and Recreation Director, Steve Chandlee, are set to revamp recreational facilities in the northern part of the county in the current fiscal year.
At Sudlersville Park, residents can look forward to witnessing a series of transformational changes. The existing basketball court will soon undergo a facelift. This project involves resurfacing the court, adding fresh lining, and applying a new color coating, elevating the playing experience for basketball enthusiasts.
Director Chandlee expressed excitement about the county's first futsal court, which will also be established at Sudlersville Park. This innovative project will convert an existing basketball court into a futsal court, featuring MUSCO's Mini-Pitch System with LED lighting technology. The installation will also include fencing and built-in goals. As futsal continues to gain popularity, this addition is expected to cater to the increasing demand in the northern area of Queen Anne's County.
As the sport of pickleball gains momentum across the country, Queen Anne's County plans to offer additional locations to play in northern Queen Anne’s County. Two tennis courts at Sudlersville Park are set to be repurposed into one tennis court and two dedicated pickleball courts. The project will entail paving, fencing, color coating, and striping, accommodating both tennis and pickleball players, all in one location.
Church Hill Park will also receive an upgrade. Two basketball courts will undergo refurbishment, including new color coatings and lining. These improvements will ensure a safer and more enjoyable experience for local basketball enthusiasts.
For pet owners in the area, the County Commissioners have considered their furry friends too. White Marsh Dog Park, will be located within White Marsh Park, is set to begin construction. The installation of new fencing and a mow strip around the dog park area perimeter will be the first step in completing this highly anticipated project.
Golf enthusiasts can rejoice as the cart paths on holes one through nine at the Blue Heron Golf Course are scheduled for paving. Following the successful completion of paving on the back nine holes 10-18, this additional project aims to further enhance the golfing experience for players and visitors alike.
Director Chandlee expressed his gratitude to the County Commissioners for their support and belief in the importance of investing in parks and recreational facilities. He emphasized the positive impact these projects will have on the overall well-being and sense of community in the county's northern area.
