No one can forget the drenching rains we experienced the last week of April. They were relentless.
Herring Run Park’s Tyndale Path suffered great damage when we lost a giant oak that crashed down on it. Thanks to a report of the downed tree from a neighboring resident and park advocate, a call was placed with Baltimore City’s Arborist at the Department of Recreation and Parks.
Mr. Erik Dihle assured FHRP that the popular path would be be cleared and made secure and he and his crews made good to their promise.
Thank you to our partners with Baltimore City Department of Recreation and Parks Forestry Division!!!!
