Meadowood Regional Park
Community Supervisor: Larry Fowler
Gateway to the Greenspring Valley
Located on the southwest corner of Falls and Greenspring Valley Roads just north of the Baltimore Beltway (I-695) and the Jones Falls Expressway (I-83), Meadowood Regional Park serves as a green gateway to scenic Greenspring Valley. The park provides a balanced mix of recreation and nature, featuring a variety of recreational facilities as well as areas specifically designated for environmental preservation. The natural environment and recreation combine to make Meadowood Regional Park a destination popular with sports and nature enthusiasts alike.
Meadowood's Recreational Side
The woodlands that encircle the recreational facilities at Meadowood Regional Park provide a scenic backdrop for the variety of activities that can be enjoyed at the park. Active sports programs of local recreation and parks councils are well served by Meadowood's six athletic fields - four of which are lighted as well as the one lighted artificial turf field. These fields are essential to meeting the area's booming recreational demand for such sports as lacrosse, soccer, football and field hockey.
Pavilions for Picnics
Meadowood Regional Park's three pavilions are available for reservation by contacting the park office at 410-887-3678. They offer an attractive venue for family, company and other group picnics.
Playground and Walking Paths
The nearby accessible playground is sure to be a hit with the kids. The paved path network that winds through the park has proven very popular and provides an excellent opportunity to get a little exercise, whether you are a walker, jogger, bicycler, roller-blader, or dog owner. Park visitors with dogs are asked to keep the park safe and clean by keeping their dogs leashed and cleaning up after them. Meadowood's path has been marked with a .8 mile route around all athletic fields. For those looking to shorten the distance, both the upper or lower section each measure .4 mile. Each path passes the restroom and park office building. Knowing this information allows visitors to gauge the distance they've covered and to clock their time to cover the distance if they so desire.
Meadowood's Natural Side
Visitors entering Meadowood Park from its parking lot off of Falls Road will cross a footbridge spanning a tranquil wood-line stream. A lovely view of the Deep Run stream may be enjoyed from the bridge. Both Deep Run and a lengthy stretch of the Jones Falls (a County-designated environmental greenway), traverse the park property, meandering close to Meadowood's east, south and west boundaries. Designated forest buffer areas have been established adjacent to the streams to help protect their water quality and to provide valuable wildlife habitat. Forest buffers such as those established at the park are an important part of Baltimore County's environmental initiatives, which are overseen by the County's Department of Environmental Protection and Resource Management. The woodlands at Meadowood Regional Park also provide a visual "break" from the nearby developed landscape and preserve a "green space" that serves as a gateway to the scenic, predominantly rural Greenspring Valley.
