This Week On Carroll Creek - April 20, 2016

The last few bricks are being laid, trees are being planted, and sod put into place. Benches, lighting, and trash receptacles are being positioned and secured for the final section of Carroll Creek Park's Grand Opening event on May 19, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. Plan to attend the festivities, and continue the celebration at Downtown Frederick Partnership's Alive@5 event on the creek at the Amphitheater after the Grand Opening. The event program will gain you complimentary entrance to Alive@5.  

Here are a few pictures showing some of the final touches falling into place along the newest section of Carroll Creek Park. 
 Sand gets brushed between bricks and pavers.
Trees, ground cover, and plants will provide shade and color in years to come.
New windows and brick tuckpointing are the focus at the Union Mills building adjacent to the creek. This building joins other revitalization projects on the East side and along Carroll Creek: Monocacy Valley Canning building and the Visit Frederick building along East Street.
