Public Input Sought on Upgrades to Ma & Pa Dog Park in Bel Air


New Passive Park in Edgewood

Harford County Parks & Recreation is looking for the public’s input on two projects – improvements to the Ma & Pa Dog Park in Bel Air and a new park planned in Edgewood.

Plans for the dog park off Tollgate Road include new surfacing, dog agility and play equipment, improved site drainage and better access to the play areas.

A rendering of the proposed improvements can be found at–Pa-Dog-Park.

The new Nuttal Avenue Park in Edgewood is being planned for about 5.5 acres on former military housing property that is bordered by the Harford Commons community, Nuttal Avenue and McCann and Goddard streets.

Plans for the passive park include a gazebo, walking trail, playground area, open space and on-street parking. The plan also proposes a new traffic pattern, including making Goddard Street one way to improve traffic flow in the area.
