Carroll/Frederick Team Up to Expand Recreational Opportunities Along Monocacy River

Carroll and Frederick Counties have been approved by the Maryland Board of Public Works using Program Open Space funds to purchase approximately 7 acres along the Monocacy River at the Carroll/Frederick County line.  The property will be used to develop an access point for canoes and kayaks and “will result in an expansion of existing water trails and recreational benefits to residents of both counties.”

From Carroll County’s press release, Commissioner Haven Shoemaker said,

“The Monocacy River basin is beautiful and currently provides many recreational opportunities for our citizens. Adding additional water access points will give folks even more chances to get out, enjoy the natural beauty of the area and experience this wonderful waterway. I am pleased that our two counties collaborated on this project and I look forward to its completion.”
