I took our new-ish dog to Lake Roland today for her first visit to the Paw Point dog park. I hadn’t been to the park in a while and was thrilled to see how it’s looking. Aside from the new unoffensive name, there’s a new (to me) playground, and the education center’s construction is moving along.
According to Lake Roland’s website, the center will have “classroom, educational and meeting space with audio/visual capabilities, plus support space. The main space of the Center can be divided into two sub-spaces with occupancy ranging from 75 to 230 individuals depending on the room configuration. The total building occupancy will be 280.
“The Center will allow the County and the Nature Council to provide year round education and event programming with access for special needs and handicapped participants. Its strategic location and proximity to the existing boardwalk further enhances its “transit oriented nature” — directly accessible from the Mass Transit Falls Road Light Rail Station via a raised boardwalk — the first of its kind in the Baltimore metro area.
One key design feature of the Center is that the front elevation facing the dam will be comprised of a series of operable glass doors allowing activities to extend onto the deck that provides year around views of the Lake Roland Dam and will also allow for increased outdoor educational programs.” Read more here.
