In March, 2009 The Trust for Public Land negotiated the purchase of a 30-acre property that has been added to South River Greenway, a new park and greenway formed from the former grounds of Crownsville State Hospital, Maryland. Anne Arundel County hopes to acquire additional nearby properties to further expand the nearly 600-acre park, which is only six miles from downtown Annapolis. Together with federal, state, and local agencies and organizations, TPL is working to acquire key private parcels that will protect water quality, preserve wildlife habitat, and offer greater outdoor recreation opportunities.
