Following a public hearing and presentation by the Carroll County Department of Parks and Recreation, the Hampstead Town Council started action to convert the area around Pump House No. 5 into a park. Initial plans for the park include two tennis courts, a basketball court and play area with a parking lot. The entire area would be appropriately fenced and landscaped at an estimated cost of $40,000. Of this amount, $30,000 will be funded under Maryland's "Open Space" program. -- Carroll Record, Dec. 7, 1972.
