Thank you to all who attended the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Friends of Herring Run Parks on Monday, November 30. Special thanks to Ray of Hope Church for hosting our meeting.
Friends, neighbors, elected officials and possible future elected officials listened to an inspirational talk about the Importance of Urban Parks given by Lisa Schroeder, President and CEO, Parks and People Foundation.
Paul Taylor, Chief, Capital Development and Planning, Baltimore City Department of Recreation and Parks, informed the crowd that the Sinclair Lane pedestrian bridge will hopefully be installed in January 2016 – weather and crane operator schedule dependent. Also, archeological concerns and safe vehicular access to the Hall Spring area of Herring Run Park will influence the redesigned entrance to the Park. Future meetings will be announced.
Chris Brown, Baltimore City Department of Transportation shared with us that the 22 million dollar Harford Road Bridge project is slated to begin Fall of 2016. Department of Transportation will announce a community meeting for Spring 2016.
Friends of Herring Run Parks looks forward to introducing an Over 50 Walking Club to celebrate the newly redone pedestrian path between Hall Spring and Sinclair Lane. Additional programming in 2016 will be the initiation of nature clubs in partnership with neighboring schools.
Lastly, in partnership with Baltimore City Department of Recreation and Parks, Friends of Herring Run Parks will coordinate monthly trail cleanups occurring the 4th Saturday of every month!
