The programming and layout is complete at 30% construction drawings; however, there are numerous details remaining. Updated detailed drawings will be available on the web page by mid-October. This information will be downloadable.
Tentative start of clearing operation is October 15th, 2018.
There is a 25’ undisturbed buffer between the Park and Paddlers Cove to the north, and a 50’ undisturbed buffer between the park and Tullamore to the South. The east and west park property boundaries have protected streams and sewer easements that will provide approximately 150’ west and 75’east buffers. For the fields adjacent to Paddlers Cove properties, the county is planning to erect a net to prevent errant balls from leaving the fields and entering into private properties.
Currently, the county is working with some lighting vendors for design & placement. With the design, light is provided for the activity while also minimizing the glare (measured in foot candles) on the adjoining properties.
The walking trail final path location has not been determined yet. Tentatively, it will follow the sewer easement on the east and west, and not enter the undisturbed buffers to the north and south. Once the clearing takes place, the best path location will be determined along the perimeter.
The plan is to chip the trees that are removed during the construction to provide the mulch material for the paths. The intent is not to remove trees or add fill material to create the path.
The operating hours have not been determined yet; however, they will comply with the York County lighting and noise ordinance.

No, only when the park is open.
The proposed parking lot will have 406 spaces, and the park entrance road will have 59 parallel spaces. Thus, a total of 465 spaces. In most circumstances this amount of available parking will be sufficient. However, the county and parks committee are prepared (if needed) to coordinate with Crowder’s Creek Elementary School for overflow parking.
Yes, Field Day Drive is the only vehicular entrance to the park.
Crescent and Crowders Creek Elementary School are responsible for the intersection improvement and the connection to Paddlers Cove Drive. Construction will commence summer 2019.
