Natural, educational and recreational opportunities abound at Piney Run Park, Carroll County Maryland's
oldest developed park. The park was opened in 1974, featuring a 300 acre lake as its centerpiece and
provides multiple recreational activities such as fishing,
boating, boat rentals and
park sponsored fishing tournaments. The lake is surrounded by 550
acres of fields, forest and open spaces which contain over 5 miles of
hiking trails, as well as tennis courts, playgrounds, climbing rock,
picnic tables and comfort stations. The Piney Run Nature Center,
Park Office and six pavilions,
which are available to rent during our open season, are all located near the
main entrance which is accessed off of White Rock Road.
