Friends of Krimgold Park

Friends of Krimgold Park

The Friends of Krimgold Park was approved as a Freedom Area Recreation Council program by the Board of Directors in June 2017 following a presentation by three Carroll County Master Gardeners. They represented a diverse group of citizens interested in establishing program activities for Krimgold Park area primarily-adult visitors.


The initial activities of this group involved working with the Director of the County Public Works Department to designate areas in the Park where invasive plants could be removed and replanted with native species. Upon his approval, the group was granted funds by the Maryland Urban and Community Forest Committee to native shrubs in two approved areas. They were planted on November 12, 2017 to enhance wildlife habitats and encourage pollinators. Look for signs like these near the two lower ponds
Earth Day at Krimgold Park

Fund raising is underway to obtain flowering perennials for planting in these same areas on World Earth Day, April 22, 2018. The Carroll County Master Gardeners are planning several educational events for Earth Day at the park pavilion. Registration is not necessary.
Details will be posted on this FARC page as they become available

Many Hands Make Quick Work


Please join the monthly Krimgold Cleanup Crew.  A big thank you to Ebenezer United Methodist parishioners who have provide many helping hands to keep Krimgold Park litter free.  At noon on the second Sunday of each spring, summer and fall month an energetic group meet at the Krimgold parking lot.  There we distribute work supplies and walk the trails and pathways while collecting litter. Please join us starting April 8th as we will again meet at the front parking lot.  Bring a friend, your walking shoes, work gloves, trash bag or get some supplies from Chuck. Shortly after noon we split up and walk the many pathways collecting litter.  After about an hour we return to bag everything into the normal park trash collection.  Join us for the next afternoon of Krimgold Cleanup Crew!
Please contact Chuck Wisner at letsplaybal1402@yahoo.com for more information about helping them.
