The Frederick County Division of Parks and Recreation, in Partnership with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, acquired a 214-acre piece of farmland in southern Frederick County in September 2008 for the development of a “regional park”; the area currently lacks a large park facility. The property was purchased using funding from Program Open Space and Land and Water Conservation.

In August 2009, the Division of Parks and Recreation organized an Advisory Committee consisting of representatives from surrounding organizations, properties, and communities to develop the master plan over a period of approximately one year. The master plan was completed and approved by the Frederick County Board of County Commissioners in November 2010.

Park development will include multipurpose fields, ball fields, walking trails, a playground, four picnic shelters, lighting, and more. Construction is expected to be completed in 2020.
