Mowing and Ball Diamond Maintenance

Baltimore County is committed to providing regularly scheduled maintenance at active athletic fields and ball diamonds in parks and community centers operated by the Department of Recreation and Parks. Below you will find our general schedule for ball diamond and grass maintenance at park and community centers throughout the county. Property Management also works with Baltimore County Public schools to maintain the grounds at school-recreation centers.

Ball Diamond Grooming

Ball diamonds at parks, community centers and elementary school recreation centers are groomed and scarified on a rotating basis at least once a week, weather permitting, April through June. Those ball diamonds that are scheduled for use through the remainder of the summer and in the fall will continue to be groomed and scarifed on a weekly basis. 

Grass Mowing

Grass maintenance areas at our parks and community centers are classified into one of three categories:

Mowing at parks, community centers and open spaces is completed by both Baltimore County crews as well as private contractors hired to complete these tasks and every effort will be made to mow on the schedules discussed here. Remember though, much like your lawn at home, our mowing schedule may vary slightly with weather and other issues. 

Active Mowing Areas

Active mowing areas are those spaces in parks around heavily used amenities such as community centers, athletic fields, ball diamonds, picnic areas and the like. These spaces will be mowed once a week April through October on the days indicated.

Passive Mowing Areas

Passive mowing areas are those spaces that are not are as heavily used.  These spaces include those with few or no amenities such as local open spaces and flood plains which will be mown twice a month.

Occasional Mowing Areas

Occasional mowing acreage are open spaces that are only cut twice a year.  These areas are "meadows" in some of our larger parks such as Cromwell Valley Park and Oregon Ridge Park.

If you have a question or concern regarding the grass in your local park or open space please contact our constituent services office at propmngt-constituentservices@baltimorecountymd.gov or call them at 410-887-3827.
