Cheverly Town Park Preliminary Design

Location: 6401 Forest Rd, Cheverly, MD 20785


Timeline: January – September 2020

About the Project

Cheverly Town Park is a vibrant community park in Cheverly, MD. In 2012-2013, the Town prepared a Park Master Plan that outlined the social, recreational, and environmental needs of the park and provided a conceptual sketch to explore initial ideas for the design. The purpose of this project is to conduct preliminary engineering investigations to better locate desired site improvements and stormwater management opportunities as well as bring the area up to 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design. This project takes into consideration the Park Master Plan. Additional community input is being sought.

About the Process


The project was officially kicked off on February 2, 2020, at a meeting with the Town’s Green Infrastructure Committee. The group reviewed the project’s scope and schedule, discussed the 2013 Town Park Master Plan and existing site conditions, and identified issues and opportunities related to environmental, recreational, social, and infrastructure/utility needs. View comments from the meeting here.

In late April – May 2020, staff elicited feedback from park users on their priorities for the park through an online questionnaire. The final results can be viewed here.

In August 2020, a second round of feedback was obtained from park users through an online questionnaire. The final results can be viewed here.
