Description

This project funds design and construction of access to natural, undeveloped parkland throughout Stream Valley Parks, Recreational/Regional Parks, Local Parks, and Conservation Areas. The projects will create and improve natural surface trails, and it will also help support natural resource-based recreation uses such as bicycling, hiking, running, horseback riding, bird watching, nature photography, wildlife viewing, kayaking, rowing, canoeing, and fishing, as identified in the 2012 Park, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Plan. Surfaces include dirt, wood chip, soil mixtures, gravel/stone, bridges, boardwalks or other elevated surfaces; they are generally narrower than hard surface trails. Work may include grading, drainage, signage, bridges, culverts, edging, realignments, restoration, etc. Natural surface trails will utilize Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines for Outdoor Recreation, but access may be limited due to site constraints.

Justification

Improvements address only the highest priority needs for each trail and presume some volunteer assistance for hand labor. Projects in Rock Creek, Rachel Carson, Little Bennett, and Black Hill implement park master plans. This CIP Project implements the natural surface recreational trail component of the Countywide Park Trails Plan and trail recommendations in area master plans. 2015 Countywide Park Trails 2005 Land Preservation, Park and Recreation Plan
