Partially Reviewed: Rough draft. I've gone through these pictures once, removing the worst ones, some duplication, etc. I usually take sequences of 4 or 5 pictures at a time and there are lots of near duplicates. I'll be doing a final review later which will cull the pictures down some. To be honest though, I'm way behind on doing final reviews.
Recognize anyone? If you recognize specific people (or other things) in the pictures which I haven't labeled, please identify them for the world. Or fill in any other descriptions you can. Click the little pencil icon underneath the file name (just above the picture). Spammers need not apply.

Description of Subject Matter: Carroll Creek Linear Park
After Hurricane Agnes raged through Maryland in 1976, downtown Frederick was left under as much as 3 feet of water in some places. With the downtown area shut down for months, city planners began working on the Carroll Creek flood control project, which took 30 years to come to fruition. The plan successfully put the creek underground in 1993, with a waist-deep 1.3 mile channel waterway with concrete banks 40 feet wide. Today we have the beautiful Carroll Creek Linear Park through downtown Frederick.
The $60 million flood control project made Carroll Creek Linear Park possible with its brick walkways, many bridges, fountains and sculptures. The first phase of the park, from Court Street to Carroll Street, was Downtown Frederick Md Sidewalk Artcompleted in 2006, costing $10.6 million.
Carroll Creek Linear Park has revitalized the downtown area with brick pedestrian paths, water features, planters with shade trees and plantings, pedestrian bridges and a 350-seat amphitheater. Over 73,000 square feet of commercial space has been built along the finished area of the park, creating and estimated 1500 jobs and $2.7 million in annual tax revenue for the City and the County.
