Severna Park Council OKs Cattail Creek property sale

After considerable lobbying by the Greater Severna Park Council, Anne Arundel County has agreed to buy 19 acres of property at the headwaters of Cattail Creek in Severna Park.

The property, located between Ritchie Highway and the B & A Trail, is costing the county just over $1 million.

The agreement with the owner, the Baltimore & Annapolis Railroad, also includes the county's purchase of an additional five acres for a scenic easement.

The land, dubbed the Cattail Creek Recreation Area, is expected to be preserved as woodlands, with perhaps a few walking trails.

The property is part of 30 acres of pristine woods that extend from the B&A Trail east to Ritchie Highway. The Greater Severna Park Council has urged the county for several years to buy the land to prevent it from being developed.
