Eastern Regional Park
Offering a Diversity of Recreational Opportunities to the Citizens of Eastern Baltimore County. One of Baltimore County's dynamic regional parks, the 122.5-acre Eastern Regional Park offers a wide variety of recreational facilities that are sure to please visitors of all ages. The park's 9,000 square foot community center provides space for the indoor recreation programs of the area's recreation and parks councils.
A large wheelchair-accessible playground has been a hit with children, their parents, and grandparents. Children enjoy the park's playground, which features an assortment of equipment, including swings, overhead climbers, game panels, chin-up bars, and slides for ages two through 12.
Life's a Picnic
Three picnic pavilions are available for reservation from April 1 through October 31. The pavilions are wheelchair-accessible, and are located in close proximity to the playground and paved path network. Three large pavilions provide the perfect setting for family picnics, group and company outings, and may be reserved through the Bengies-Chase Community Office by calling 410-887-5939 or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pavilion Status: No weekend availability through July. Very limited weekend availability for the months of August and September. If you are interested in reserving, please contact the Bengies-Chase Office to confirm the availability of the date you are requesting.
Off the Beaten Track
A network of paved paths (PDF) meander between the park's ball diamonds and athletic fields, offering an enjoyable venue for walkers, joggers, roller bladers, and bicyclists alike. A one-mile route has been marked on the paths to allow park visitors to gauge the distance they've covered and time themselves if so desired. The paths connect with natural trails that traverse the park's wooded areas and skirt the edge of Saltpeter Creek. Nature enthusiasts may be lucky enough to spot a great blue heron from one of the overlooks that provide views of the creek and adjoining wetlands.
Future plans call for the trails to connect with a regional greenway trail that would stretch for approximately three miles from the adjacent Chase Elementary School Recreation Center to the Hammerman Area of Gunpowder Falls State Park. This proposed greenway trail would also provide a pedestrian link to the Marshy Point Nature Center.
