The Calvert County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) held a ribbon cutting ceremony today to celebrate the new Dunkirk District Park playground.
The new playground theme is “Chesapeake Bay: Above and Below Water” showcases two iconic Calvert County structures: the W.B. Tennison and the Drum Point Lighthouse.
The Calvert County Department of Parks & Recreation released surveys in July and October of 2020 to receive citizen input on the playground’s design.
After hundreds of responses, and much consideration, the design was finalized in November 2020 and construction began in July 2021.
The playground replacement is the first phase of park upgrades that include the construction of a new outdoor tennis and pickleball facility and the addition of a splashpad.
