Owings Mills experienced such a growth spurt in the ‘90s (an influx of about 24,000 residents) that its parks and recreation department decided they needed to create more outdoor space to accommodate the newcomers. That’s why they established Northwest Regional Park, a 322-acre enclave on the western fringes of Owings Mills.
The sprawling park boasts many options for outdoor recreation, from its paved paths for walking, jogging, and biking, to its trio of picnic pavilions for enjoying a meal outside. The greenspace also boasts athletic fields where local teams face off, a playground, and nature trails that weave through the trees. With plenty of space in the parking lot, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding a spot at Northwest Regional Park. So the next time you have a sunny afternoon free, you know where to go for some fresh air.
