Overview

Description

Honoring the first President of the United States, Boonsboro citizens erected the first monument to George Washington, a rugged stone tower, in 1827 on the mountainside now within the park. Other features include rental pavilions, playground and a portion of the Appalachian Trail. There are youth group campsites available by reservation. The park offers picnic shelters and playing fields. It's a superb park for bird watching because the Cumberland Valley is a migratory bird flyway. Birding enthusiasts gather for an annual count of migrating hawks and eagles at the monument.

PB Dye Golf Club

PB Dye Golf Club is the only course in Maryland to feature Penn G-2 bent grass greens. One of the newer seed varieties, G-2 is also used at the Pinehurst No. 2 course. Throughout the course, closely mowed collection areas and the large greens replicate conditions seen on the PGA TOUR. The fairways are large, rolling, and well-guarded by bunkers. PB Dye Golf Club offers over 40 acres of closely cut fairways, making for a firm playing surface where big drives are the norm.
