Project Description: 

This project involves land acquisition, design and construction to create a park area at the southeast corner of Baltimore Avenue and Edgewood Road.  The main part of the site is zoned commercial but is recommended for parks and open space in the Central US1 Corridor Sector Plan.  The house previously occupying the site has been demolished.  Design plans call for a pavilion that will serve as a gateway feature, pathways, extensive landscaping with native plants and micro bio-retention features.
