Caroline Co. commissioners purchase new park and seeking feedback from community

GREENSBORO, Md. – The master plan design is currently underway for the North County Regional Park in Caroline County. But in order to move forward with a plan for the 207-acre piece of land, county commissioners need your input.

The commissioners decided to purchase this area in Greensboro, as a way to give the north end some access because the south end already has a regional park.

Currently, North County Park has walking trails but they hope to build baseball or soccer fields.

We’re told the master plan is a tool to define the vision and the priorities for the park development and that’s why they released a survey for resident feedback.

President of the Caroline County Commissioners, Larry Porter tells us, “We want to know what the people want, what they expect of the park, and I think it will be an opportunity to gage the interest in it, I know there’s a lot of interest keeping people involved.”

The survey is about five minutes long and is available here.

We’re told it could be two to four years before the county actually breaks ground on athletic field development.

But for now, they are currently working with an eagle scout to place benches and flags on the trails.
