This Week on Carroll Creek - October 12, 2015

Changes and improvements continue along Carroll Creek Park, between East Street and East Patrick Street. Several new walls are nearing completion with brick, stone and cap stone work. Retaining walls running along the creek's edge and the edge of the park are just a small but integral part to the final project.

Access across the creek is the Wisner Street pedestrian bridge (below). The second photo shows the south end abutment. The recesses in the brick are accents to the wall. The high stone wall to the right of the brick is the handicap ramp access to the pedestrian bridge.

Union Mills, which fronts East Patrick Street and is adjacent to the Creek, is under renovation and will welcome its first tenant in early 2016.

About the Next Phase of Carroll Creek Park
This next phase of park improvements include new and widened multi-use paths, landscape planters, lighting, water features and crosswalk improvements. The work is complete between Bentz Street and S. Market Street and continues between East Street and East Patrick Street. More than $100M in new and renovated private construction is planned along the new park/path sections, which will eventually result in hundreds of new jobs and increased state and local tax revenues.
