The goal of Catoctin Creek Park is to provide environmental education facilities, which will appeal to a broad range of park users in Frederick County. Development included the 6,100 square foot Nature Center with a vegetated roof, a receiving pavilion, a new entrance drive, parking, a well and septic system, bioretention pond, geothermal well field, landscaping, playground, picnic pavilion, and a handicapped-accessible loop trail.
The Catoctin Creek Park also has it’s own blog.
