What to do this summer in Maryland ~ Centennial Park

Services for Real Estate Pros

Over the next couple of weeks I will highlight some of my personal favorite spots to visit in Maryland. I have lived in Maryland all my life and I love learning about new places, so if you have a favorite spot to go please share it with me.

1st stop ~ Centennial Park in Ellicott City

I have been going to this the park for as long as I can remember. 

Centennial Park has an amazing playground! Seriously, this playground is so large that your inner child will come out and you will want to play too!

Centennial Park Ellicott City

This park features a beautiful lake with a 2.4 mile path around it. If you would rather be on the lake instead of going around it, you can rent a boat, or hang out on the side and go fishing. Paddle boats, canoes, kayaks and row boats are available for rent.

There are many covered pavilions throughout that can be rented as well as many different areas to grab a picnic table or a spot on the grass.

Throughout the summer months the park offers concerts. Sunset Serenades is Wednesdays from 7:00PM to 8:30PM. The schedule is as follows...

In addition to all the amenities, this park offers 325 acres, so there is also a lot of green space where you can always find people playing a game of catch, flying a kite, or enjoying the weather and reading a book.

If you have never been here before you should certainly add it to you "to do" list. 

For additional park information or more details regarding their rentals and the Summer Serenades schedule,  please visit their website.
