Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to Celebrate Grand Re-Opening
of Middletown Community Park
FREDERICK, Md. – The Frederick County Division of Parks and Recreation officially cut the ribbon on the newly renovated Middletown Community Park Saturday. For the past two years, the park on Coblentz Road has been under construction, with new features added and existing features upgraded.
“Middletown Community Park is an important gathering place for the community, with nearly 611,000 visitors last year,” County Executive Jan Gardner said.
“The long-awaited facelift adds more shelters and ballfields so more people can recreate in this beautiful park. It’s all about making life better for the people of Frederick County.”
Design work for the 79-acre park began two years ago. New facilities and amenities within the park include two additional picnic shelters, two new ballfields, a new restroom building, and four new fountains in the pond. Park visitors will find a number of upgraded features, as well. Two playgrounds were replaced. Sports facilities – four ballfields, a volleyball court, and a basketball court – were rehabilitated. The pond was dredged. The trail, roads and a parking lot were resurfaced. A new concrete stage was constructed. The existing restroom, utility lines, shelter #2 and the maintenance shop were all renovated.
Middletown Community Park also offers amenities such as fishing, grills, horseshoe pits, trails, marble rings. This fall, a disc golf course will be added. The park is also home to many special events during the year, including Family Fishing, Color Me Spring Festival and the Independence Day Celebration with the Middletown Recreation Council, as well as a wide variety of sports programs and community-sponsored events.
