Newtowne Neck State Park in Compton is getting a total of $800,000 to develop the waterfront park.
The Maryland Department of Natural Resources received a $400,000 matching federal grant to develop outdoor recreation facilities, according to the office of Sen. Ben Cardin (D, Md.).
The grant will be used to fund construction of hiking, biking and equestrian trails, tent and RV camping sites, mini-cabins, swimming, picnicking and shelter areas and motorboat access areas.
Newtowne Neck State Park is a 776-acre peninsula surrounded by Breton Bay, St. Clements Bay and the Potomac River.
State and federal funding total $800,000 for the improvements.
