Passive Neighborhood Park Adds Green Space to Greater Towson

Residents of Towson’s Aigburth Manor and surrounding communities can look forward to a new neighborhood park to enjoy by the end of this year. Baltimore County Executive Don Mohler hosted a groundbreaking celebration this morning that marked the start of construction of Radebaugh Park, located on Maryland Avenue, off of Burke Avenue.

“We are excited to be moving forward on Radebaugh Park, which will be an oasis of open space for people from the surrounding neighborhoods to relax and unwind,” Mohler said to an enthusiastic crowd of Towson residents who gathered for the event.

“This is the first new public park in eastern Towson in more than two decades, and it will provide green space in one of our most densely-populated areas,” said 5th District Councilman David Marks. “In addition to support from County Executive Mohler, our state legislators, and residents, I would like to acknowledge the work of our late County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. He kept his word, and the land was preserved.”

The park property is zoned residential, and the creation of this park prevents the development of the land. Radebaugh Park is a significant addition to the portfolio of green spaces and parkland in Towson, including the nearly complete redevelopment of Patriot Plaza, which will provide an attractive community venue for people to gather during the week and for special events. These two parks represent an investment of more than $7 million for new parks in greater Towson.

The 3.76-acre Radebaugh Park will be passive in nature, offering open space for neighborhood residents to enjoy as a place to walk, picnic and enjoy nature. The park includes a 2.36-acre parcel of land housing unused greenhouses, which Baltimore County purchased from Radebaugh Florist in the fall of 2016. Crews are demolishing the greenhouses and will grade and seed the area. The park’s projected completion date is this December.

The County purchased the property for $1.1 million, including local Program Open Space funds. In addition to the purchase price, the County worked with state legislators to secure $175,000 to assist with demolition of greenhouses on the land. The contractor is General Paving and the architect is Pennoni Associates.
