Upcoming life-size board game project not approved for Carroll Creek location


An upcoming public project that will bring a life-size board game to downtown Frederick, Maryland will have to find a new spot after plans for a Carroll Creek venue were not approved.

On Tuesday, the Downtown Frederick Partnership presented plans for the place-making project before the Public Art Commission.

The commission decided the project did not constitute public art.  As a result, the project was then presented before the Parks and Recreation Commission for review.

“They like a lot of things about it but there was some concerns about the particular location. Commissions recommended both looking at Mullinx Park, which we will take a look at, as well as the playground at Baker Park that’s directly adjacent to Bentz Street and behind Talley [Recreation Center,]” explained Kara Norman with the Downtown Frederick Partnership.

The board game, modeled after Candyland, was among the final four design pitches presented in the Downtown Frederick Partnership’s Pitchcraft Competition.
