Public Meeting Planned for Potential Long Wharf Park and Marina Project

Posted: Updated:

CAMBRIDGE, Md.- A brand new lighthouse, a working fountain and the farmers market are all recent additions to the Long Wharf Park and Marina over the past few months and now city officials are seeking public input about what else can be accomplished.

"A picnic area here for people who want to come off their boat and barbeque a hot dog or whatever would be nice," said Dave Perry.

"Maybe could do something about the parking to make it more attractive or something, more trees and maybe a few more benches," said Toby Gearhart of Cambridge.

While on some people's wish lists are tall trees and a lot more benches, the people who live the closest to Long Wharf marina say they like it just the way it is.

"Enough is enough," said Patricia Hurley, who lives right across the street from the growing marina. She said any more additions could ruin its appeal.

"Too much commercialism would just destroy the looks of it," said Hurley. "Not to congested but I want everyone to enjoy it like it is and not too much construction and too many things messing it up."

A public input workshop will be held next week on the project. For additional details, call the City of Cambridge at (410) 228-4020.
