This spring, we just can't spend enough time outdoors. While our A&G communities have playgrounds and outdoor space perfect for a day outside, we know that sometimes a beautiful spring day calls for a bit more, like picnic areas, multiple playgrounds and miles of walking and biking trails. Here are our top 5 parks to visit this spring.
If your idea of a great park is more like a beach, this one is for you, featuring two playgrounds, covered and uncovered picnic areas, access to boating and fishing year round, as well as swimming from Memorial Day to Labor Day. (Image above courtesy of MD Department of the Environment.)
