Lake Elkhorn in Columbia, MD - a giant back-yard

It seems like Lake Elkhorn in Columbia, MD has mostly been making the local news because of the dredging issues. That is a shame really because it is such a beautiful area boasting its very own Arboretum and a fitness walk around the lake.

The dredging - which is finally scheduled to continue - is, of course, necessary to preserve said beauty but there's nothing wrong with showing it off occasionally either!

Lake Elkhorn is like a giant back-yard for the nearby residents of the Village of Owen Brown who just need to take a few steps to enjoy its beauty and wildlife year round and to take advantage of the trail and fitness stations.
Some very fortunate home owners on Swan Point Way get to take it all in from their very own decks ...

Being a resident near Lake Elkhorn does come with an extra responsibility, however, to control run-off by installing rain gardens for example. If you need some ideas for a rain garden, head to the Robinson Nature Center at 6692 Cedar Lane - they have a demonstration of a townhome-sized back yard complete with rain barrel and compost bin.

Hi Mona, thank you! It's a wonderful lake/park but no boating or beaches unfortunately. But the fitness run is a novel idea .. along the trail are stations for pull ups and sit ups etc.

Hi William, thank you! To the residents the area does feel like an extension of their back yard especially when you get to enjoy the view every morning while sipping your coffee on the balcony!

Gorgeous pictures Andrea!  It is wonderful when folks can enjoy those kinds of scenes near to their homes.  I hope the dredgeing issues are quickly resolved!

Hi Myrl, thank you! There's hope that the dredging will soon be a thing of the past. They had to stop work a year ago b/c of contractor trouble but it is resuming now!

Hi Louise, we just might be able to arrange that :-)
