Ongoing Projects

The Town of Sykesville is working on projects!  Check out the current projects below.   This page will be updated when there is new information for any project. 

Millard Cooper Park

  • Zip Line
    The zipline feature was installed in 2020 as part of the new playground construction. During its brief use, the cable has failed or nearly failed several times and is currently down until the cause is determined. We are working with the manufacturer of this equipment to have them complete additional testing and make the necessary improvements to prevent this cable failure from happening in the future. The time line to complete these tests given by the manufacturer is estimated to be several more weeks. The zipline was reinstalled at the beginning of January 2022. We will be monitoring the zipline for any functional issues. Please contact us at 410-795-8959 or town@sykesville.net if you have questions or to report an issue with the zipline.  
  • Splash Pad
    We are very excited for the splash pad, and we know you are too!  We are working through the final heath inspections so we can officially open the feature on Friday, May 27th.  A ribbon cutting will be held at 10AM that day.  We are also in the process of putting the final touches on the new sidewalk along Cooper Drive.

Linear Trail

  • The Town completed repair work on roughly 600 linear feet near the entrance along Brandenburg Circle in the Fall of 2022.  We are now looking at replacing two of the dated exercise stations along the trail.  This work will begin in the coming weeks.
