Little known and hardly developed, a small Baltimore County park next to Perry Hall High School is slated for a major trail extension.
County Councilman David Marks recently announced that plans to increase walking amenities at Indian Rock Park are moving forward. He has scheduled a community meeting at 5:30 p.m. on June 5 in the high school's library to discuss the proposed extension.
"From Ebenezer Road, the trail is planned to extend along the perimeter of the high school campus at Indian Rock Park, then connect with the existing loop that has been build inside the woods. The trail will then return to the high school campus and extend to the existing connection at Silver Hall Road," according to a statement from the councilman.
The extension's purpose is to increase the walkability of areas between Ebenezer Road and the Silver Spring Road, and it may take up to two years to complete. Marks' office gained a $30,000 grant toward the project in December 2011 from the State Highway Administration's Recreational Trails Program.
"One of my priorities as your County Councilman has been to improve the network of roads, sidewalks and trails that connects our neighborhoods," he stated.
Perry Hall Patch plans to live blog the Tuesday meeting.
