Downs Memorial Park

Downs Memorial Park Professional Review and Guide

"Enjoy a heady combination of mature forest, boggy marshland, self-guided nature trails, golden sand beach, and stunning water views. This land, now owned by the Anne Arundel County Department of Parks and Recreation, comes well stocked not only in natural beauty but also in human history.

Downs Memorial stands on Bodkin Neck, a peninsula at the confluence of the Patapsco River and Chesapeake Bay. Deeds to its earliest settlement date back to 1670 and include Charles Carroll, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, among its initial landowners."
