Overview
The spring on the property releases up to 3.25 million gallons of water per day which is thought to be one of the strongest springs in Maryland. It maintains a constant temperature of 54 degrees Fahrenheit year-round. The water is used in a trout fishing pond that spills into a wet meadow area. The Department of Natural Resources periodically stocks the pond with trout, although no schedule is available through Fountain Rock Park.
