No-leash dog park to open

The county's first no-leash dog park and the area's first skate park will open at the Hannah More Park in Reisterstown next month, county officials said.

The dog park will be the first of its kind in the county, necessitating a change in the county code to allow unleashed dogs, said county Councilman Kevin Kamenetz, who represents the Reisterstown area. The council will vote on the change at its Oct. 3 meeting.

The skate park will be similar to an existing county facililty in Timonium. A grand opening is scheduled for 3 p.m. Oct. 15.

Hannah More Park, 12035 Reisterstown Road, is operated by the county's Department of Recreation and Parks. The facility contains ball fields and a senior center.
