Angel Park

The Cole Foundation presented a ceremonial check in the amount of $100,000 toward funding Angel Park on Tuesday, Sept. 23, in Towson.

TOWSON — At its meeting on Monday, Oct. 6, the Baltimore County Council officially designated the property south of the Perry Hall Branch Library as “Angel Park.” Baltimore County Councilman David Marks introduced the resolution, which passed unanimously.Angel Park is a proposed all-inclusive playground and amphitheater that is entirely funded, at this point, by private donations and manpower. The park will hopefully be constructed in mid-2015.

“The idea for the park was inspired by local Perry Hall residents Kelli and Andy Szczybor, who turned the tragedy of the loss of their infant son, Ryan, to Leukemia over 16 years ago, into an idea to build a park that would be a positive, safe, and peaceful area that every child and family could enjoy,” the Council resolution notes. “The name ‘Angel’ was purposely chosen by the Perry Hall community to represent the goodness in community and the positive impact that people — even total strangers — can have on each other’s lives.”
