A meeting to allow community input on the planned design to close Little Paint Branch Trail's gap between College Park and Fairland Regional Park will be held next month.
Hosted by Parks and Recreation staff of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, the community meeting will be held Wednesday, Sept. 14, from 7-8:30 p.m. at Beltsville Community Center, 3900 Sellman Road.
Representatives from M-NCPPC's Park Planning and Development Division will provide an overview of the proposed trail, review the completion schedule and answer questions. The new trail will start where the Paint Branch Trail currently ends at Cherry Hill Road in College Park, and will connect to the Beltsville Community Center, where it will meet the existing trail along the Little Paint Branch.
These trails are part of the more than 20-mile Anacostia Tributary Trail System that links parks, neighborhoods and Metro stations in northern Prince George's County for hikers, bikers and equestrians.
