Baltimore County bought a piece of land in Towson with the intent of turning it into a public green space.

County Executive Kevin Kamenetz announced the County bought a 2.36-acre property owned by Radebaugh Florist for $1.1 million. It’s located just off of Aigburth Avenue across from 120 E. Burke Avenue. Another $175,000 will go toward greenhouse demolition.

Further plans for the park weren’t immediately disclosed. The next step is for the County Council to approve the sale. An environmental study found no issues impacting the sale. The Baltimore Sun reported earlier this fall that the Radebaugh family will continue to use part of the property for its florist business.

“We have been working hard to add additional open space for Towson residents, and this purchase will help us achieve that goal,” Kamenetz said.
