A draft plan for Washington County parks and land preservation provides a broad outline for future improvements through 2005, calling for additional soccer fields, indoor pools, basketball and tennis courts and upgrading Hagerstown Municipal Stadium.
The plan, which is available for public comment at county libraries and at the Washington County Planning Department, says the county has adequate park acreage but needs additional "neighborhood" parks in urban areas.
Except for building one new regional park, the long-term plan calls for concentrating on upgrading facilities at existing parks.
Some of the major projects scheduled after the year 2000 include an indoor recreation center at Martin L. "Marty" Snook Regional Park in Halfway and indoor pools at Hagerstown Junior College and in Boonsboro.
