Schumaker Pond Park

Schumaker Park is a beautiful, 11 acre wooded area nestled peacefully along the waterline of Schumaker Pond. The park is somehow spacious and intimate at the same time, making it perfect for either a large gathering or a quiet, casual outing. Family reunions or corporate picnics, for instance, can be easily accommodated in the large pavilion which sits up on the hill overlooking the water. An oversized grill is situated right next to the pavilion, in its own shelter, making it easy to cook on the spot for big groups. At the other end of the park is a playground with swings, slides, riding toys and a play set. Picnic tables and benches are spread throughout the well-shaded park, providing many separate areas for rest and relaxation. Down the hill from the wooded area is a narrow beach along the pond and a long dock which can be used for fishing.

There is also an 18-hole disc golf course spread throughout Schumaker Park, affectionately called “the Schu” by regular players. The course is home to league play on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings and also to special events, such as the Schumaker Spring Shootout and Father’s Day Doubles. According to a league member, “the multiple tees & pins on every hole allow everyone from the true rec player to the top pro to have an enjoyable round”. For more information about leagues and events, check out the message board by the central restroom building at the park or visit one of the following websites: www.discgolfscene.com or www.dgcoursereview.com. And be sure to come on out and enjoy everything Schumaker Park has to offer!

This park was funded in part by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources Program Open Space Grants.
