News Release, Calvert County Public Information Office

PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – April 4, 2019 – The Calvert County Department of Parks & Recreation is developing a master plan for Cove Point Park in Lusby and a nearby property on the east side of Maryland Route 2-4. Residents can offer their visions for these sites through an online survey now open.

By completing the survey at, residents can let planners know the types of amenities and activities they believe should be incorporated into the new park. Citizen input will help guide the development of this major new investment in the community.

Development of the new park is partially funded by more than $4 million recently donated to the county by Dominion. The property, formerly known as Offsite Area A, was used by Dominion Cove Point during the liquefaction export project. At the completion of the project, Dominion donated approximately 100 acres to the county to develop a regional park. An adjacent county-owned property brings the total park size to 179 acres. To ensure park development happens quickly, Dominion donated $1.1 million to jump start the master plan for the park and recently donated an additional $3 million.
