The Maryland Board of Public Works has approved a request from the Department of Natural Resources to help pay for several improvements to Rockville’s 44-acre Dogwood Park, at 800 Monroe St.

The project will receive $313,088 in Program Open Space funding.
Work at the park includes construction of four covered baseball dugouts, Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant access paths to two baseball fields, renovations of the press boxes, electrical upgrades to the snack bar, replacement of a portion of the fencing, and the installation of field lighting, among other improvements.

The work, which is partially completed, is expected to be finished in Fiscal Year 2021, which begins July 1, 2020.
