The Olympian Park construction is under way on the Towson Circle to honor Baltimore County Olympians.

Orange fencing and yellow tape have been on the site for awhile on the site of a former gas station.

Located at the corner of Allegheny & West Joppa Rd (and the Towson Circle), it is a nice site that has been unused for some time.

The first Olympians to be honored by the new park are all swimmers who have medaled in the games. Michael Phelps, Katie Hoff, and Jessica Long will have column monuments with their names and medal achievements. More Baltimore County Olympians will be added in the future.

The park has a great location near local shops, as well as the larger stores on the Towson Circle and is caddy-corner to the Towson Town Center Mall,  as well as being across from the upstairs entrance to Barnes & Noble and Trader Joe’s in Towson Circle Plaza.

Baltimore County has been home to a number of past Olympic champions and hopefully many more in the future. It should be wonderful to have this new Towson park to celebrate their achievements and have a nice place to sit when spending time in Towson!
