This exciting event is expected to be one of the largest in the park’s history.

Newly restored fireplace

In preparation of the big weekend, Park technicians Sean Rafter and Mark Beals installed a new entrance sign at the park and restored its 1950s stone fireplace. Other improvements include new picnic pads, tables and grills, and new steps to the picnic area. The park also has new Americans with Disabilities Act-accessible features, such as a paved walkway to the Casselman River Bridge.

Many of the recent improvements were funded in part by a Scenic Byways Grant from the State Highway Administration. For more information about the upcoming Casselman River Bridge Bicentennial event, click here or call 301-387-4386. Directions and more on the park can be found here.
