This park was funded in part by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources Program Open Space Grants.
Savage Park offers many opportunities for discovering wildlife, wildflowers and natural history along 2.8 miles of interconnecting trails, including links to Patuxent Branch Trail and Lake Elkhorn.
The Savage Loop Trail offer different lengths and terrains for hikers and bikers of various skill levels. The park environment offers an abundance of recreational areas such as 5 ball diamonds (permit use only); 2 basketball courts; 2 horseshoe pits; a picnic pavilion available on a first-come-first-served basis, unless reserved; 4 lighted tennis courts, 2 volleyball courts, a playground and restroom facilities. The outfields of ball diamonds 1-4 can be permitted out to serve as a multipurpose field or a mini-soccer field, but no goals are provided. Ball diamond 5 will be lighted. Personal grills and hibachis are permitted. Don’t forget to explore the historic Bollman Truss Bridge and Savage Mill during your visit. The Park is open from 7 AM to dusk, or as posted.

Things to Remember
Help to keep your parks beautiful -- please take your trash and recyclable items home. Take only pictures and leave only footprints.
Dog droppings may attract disease-harboring pests, and even a friendly dog can scare the birds, wildlife and park visitors. Clean up after your dog and keep it leashed; it's the law.
All of our parks are inhabited by a wide variety of wildlife such as deer, snakes, fish, rabbits, insects and birds. Please do not disturb them; remember, this is their home.
