It’s more than just a playground – it’s about community. Listen to these wise kids tell it like it is. They have a vision!
Recently a group of parents have come together with the Romancoke on the Bay Community Association to create a new playground on the grounds of the Romancoke Community Clubhouse. Our kids need it! Many local parents & caretakers drive all the way to Matapeake School to take kids to a playground. Our goals are to improve the community and appeal to a broad age range including kids, parents, grandparents, adults, teens and caretakers.
The components we have chosen are:
– high quality & long-lasting
– low opportunity for vandalism (minimalistic design)
– can’t “hide” in or behind them like a structure
– wide age range / appeal

The design engineer for the Community Collection mains, Hazen and Sawyer, will be doing some soil testing/borings to determine subsurface conditions as part of their contract.
These activities may begin within the next several days.
The location map below indicates the areas that soil samples will be collected. County inspectors will be monitoring this work and will ensure that all locations will be stabilized/restored to pre-test conditions. Click here for a PDF of the location map.

This great photo of a frozen Kent Island was sent to us by sailor Francis Duranza from West Chester, PA. He was on a flight to Philadelphia from Miami on February 20, 2015.
The photo is a great way to commemorate a new record low temperature set that same day – it was only 5 degrees Fahrenheit! Northwest winds were between 10-20 knots and gusting close to 30. There were also 6-7 inches of snow on the ground from a storm earlier in the week making the scene even chillier.
Click on the photo for an even larger view. You’ll note the Chesapeake Bay Bridge is barely visible in the middle of the photo connecting the Eastern and Western Shores of Maryland, but you can clearly see a line of white broken ice marking the shipping channel. It is to the left of our icy Kent Island shoreline, crossing under the center span of the Bay Bridge and veering off toward Baltimore and the Patapsco.
Thanks for the photo Francis!
Updated: Francis sent a couple more photos. Also added a photo, we took a few days later, of bald eagles and the thawing ice. More snow expected this evening.
