McKnew Park in Burtonsville Will Have a New Playground Soon

The current project at McKnew Local Park in Burtonsville will renovate the existing playground and picnic area for multi-purpose recreation and leisure uses while providing accessibility and stormwater management.


The existing playground was installed in 1998.  It will be removed and a new playground will be installed in its place.  Local park playgrounds are typically 3,500 to 5,000 square feet in size and include playground equipment to meet the needs of children from ages 2-12, and seating for caregivers.  Typical types of equipment include swings, play structures and smaller freestanding pieces.

Status/Project Update

The old swings were removed and a new swing was installed.  The design process has begun and a community information meeting will be scheduled. This summer, concepts will be posted for community review and comments. In the fall, the design will be finalized and permits will be obtained and construction is set to begin in early 2023.
