Recreation Master Plan Review


This Recreation Master Plan process was a joint effort between the Lake Linganore Association and Oakdale Investments. The process aimed to:

  1. Enhance existing recreation amenities
  2. Increase the quantity of amenities to serve a growing community population
  3. Improve access to and connectivity between amenities
  4. Create new and unique active and passive recreation experiences for all ages

Community residents were able to provide input throughout the process and influence the final results of the plan.

LandDesign, a planning, urban design and landscape architecture firm was hired to prepare the plan. LandDesign worked on many similar recreation master plans with lake access, trails, and other outdoor amenities such as amphitheaters as key components. With the collective experience of team members, LandDesign brought a deep understanding of what is required to realize the full potential of Lake Linganore’s community amenities, including design, phasing, construction and costs.


The adoption of the Development Rights and Responsibility Agreement (DRRA) and Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Lake Linganore Association and Oakdale Investments called for the development of a comprehensive recreation plan for the Lake Linganore community. The process was built from an amenity survey conducted by the Strategic Planning Committee. In the survey, residents frequently asked for a new community center, improved trails, boat storage, dog and skate parks, and additional play fields among other enhancements.
