The Baltimore County Code, specifically Article 12 (Animals) and Article 30 (Recreation and Parks), applies to all recreation sites and parks. The policy directs county agencies and developers to consider all types of users and modes of transportation when constructing buildings and improving roads, and include facilities that allow people to walk, ride bicycles, or use public transportation when appropriate. The regional bike facility map contains all existing trails and bike lanes in the Baltimore region. It is mandatory that all Baltimore County League officials, coordinators, assistant coaches, members, volunteers, and parents (including family members and spectators) maintain high standards of personal conduct and integrity when participating in all events and activities at permitted recreational and school facilities in Baltimore County, and that they comply with facility behavior regulations.
The regional bike facility map is a collaborative product of BMC, the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Group, county planning and GIS partners from the Baltimore region, the Maryland Department of Planning, the Maryland Department of Transportation, and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. The Pedestrian Infrastructure Assessment Toolkit (PIAT) was developed by the Baltimore Regional Transportation Board in partnership with member jurisdictions. This planning-level cost estimation tool has been developed by the Maryland Department of Transportation and the Baltimore Regional Transportation Board's Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Group. The master plan envisaged the creation of a county-wide plan focused on improving the county's transportation system for the use of pedestrians and bicycles, in response to growing concerns related to motor vehicle traffic congestion and health. The school-recreational center concept was formally adopted through a joint use agreement between the Department of Recreation and Parks, Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS), the Baltimore County Board of Education, and the Baltimore County Recreation and Parks Board. These projects are largely funded by the Baltimore County Capital Improvement Program and are implemented by the Department of Public Works and Transportation. A 193-acre preserve with a secluded canyon and waterfall is also available for visitors to explore. All visitors must respect the rules to keep reservations safe and sustainable.
