Before and after at Pangborn Park

October 22, 2007

The City of Hagerstown has a newly built addition on its grounds, the Pangborn Park fountain and gardens. A dedication ceremony was held Tuesday, Oct. 16, at the park at 530 Pangborn Blvd. Pangborn Park was donated to the City of Hagerstown by Pangborn Industries and is known for its beautiful, lush landscape. Of the project's total cost of $86,000 for the construction of the fountain and gardens, $50,000 was paid for by a Maryland State Highway Grant Scenic By-ways Program; $16,000 was paid for by Program Open Space; $10,000 was funded by the City of Hagerstown General Fund; and $10,000 was donated by Dan Ryan Builders. The park already offers two pavilions, an extensive variety of playground equipment, racquetball courts and lighted tennis courts, a sand base volleyball court, horseshoe pits, lawn bowling court, baseball diamond, formal garden and a manmade pond stocked with fish. Pathways meander through the park, including a recently added lighted path, with bridges across the park's stream, which connects Pangborn Park to Fairgrounds Park.
