Carroll County officials held a ceremony Tuesday morning to celebrate the opening of the first phase of the county’s newest park, Westminster Veterans Memorial Park on Crest Lane. The 33-acre park features a walking trail, playground, picnic pavilion and free play area, according to Carroll County Recreation & Parks Director Jeff Degitz. Many other county parks include dedicated sports fields that are often occupied with practices or games for organized sports. Free play areas allow for families and children in the neighborhood to use a large open space to kick a ball or fly a kite, Degitz explained.
