Walk around the pond
If you’ve traversed over to the Crofton Meadows Pond off Riedel Road, you’ve likely notice some improvements for pedestrians — namely, a full walking path around the length of the pond area, four more street lights, and a new crosswalk across Aberdeen Drive.
According to the Crofton Meadows Homeowners Association board, the latest project is the recent installation of two sets of 12-foot wide paver stone steps providing access to benches around the pond, along with vegetation and buffer planning in various areas to maintain the pond’s health and aesthetics.
“There are several benefits from these improvement projects,” said Adriane DiCamillo, association manager with Professional Community Management, Inc.
“The lake and walkway give residents a place to exercise, spend time with family and friends, and enjoy the lake,” she said, adding that the pond allows catch-and-release fishing.
The steps project, which cost approximately $6,000, just finished this past week. The vegetation and buffer planning is expected to start in September. “Every time we visit the lake, there are always people traveling the path, playing at the tot lot, or sitting on a bench and enjoying the view,” DiCamillo said.
