Wicomico County Unveils Master Plan for Pirate's Wharf Park

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- After years of planning, Wicomico County unveiled on Monday the master plan for Pirate's Wharf Park.

During a meeting open for public comment, members of Andrews, Miller & Associates, a division of Davis, Bowen & Friedel, revealed the draft for the amenities the county is hoping to build in the 340 acre property located in Quantico.

"In this first phase we're focusing on developing the waterfront property," explains Steve Miller, Director of Wicomico County's Department of Recreation, Parks & Tourism. "We want to focus on giving the public access to the Wicomico River."

Hiking trails by the water, a fishing pier, a boat ramp, and an observation deck are part some of the features the county is hoping to include.

 

 

 

"We will also have an area for events, parking and bathrooms," adds Miller.

Many who live nearby, like Cindy Curran, who works as the innkeeper at the Whitehaven Hotel, believe the park will be beneficial for locals and visitors.

"I think they would really like that because they're always looking for the closest park, and I usually send them to Pemberton, and now I'll be sending them to Pirate's Wharf," Curran said.

The budget for Phase One of the project is $1.6 million. Miller says they're aiming to finish the project by 2021.
