Activating 135 acres of City-owned land, Westside Regional Park will deliver critical open space and recreational opportunities to residents — improving public health and local quality of life. The park will provide first-rate sports facilitates that are needed in the Frederick region. The venue will serve community sports teams and enable Frederick to attract tournament play to the City — stimulating the local economy and decreasing travel demands on Frederick families. More detailed information can be found in the Westside Regional Park Plan.
Frederick is getting a $400,000 grant for Westside Regional Park Development.
The aldermen voted Wednesday to accept a $400,000 grant for work including acquisition, design, construction, site improvement and other work at the site of the future park off of Butterfly Lane. The money was approved as part of a state Senate bill passed in 2020.
A destination playground dedicated to the memory of sisters Sophie and Madigan Lillard is moving closer to becoming a reality at the future Westside Regional Park at Hargett Farm. The playground will honor the lives of Sophie and Madigan Lillard by building a memorial playground and providing opportunities for children and their families to play, learn, and create lifelong memories together, and in ways that reflect the beautiful personalities and spirits of these two sisters.
The City of Frederick will fund basic park infrastructure, while money raised through the nonprofit Sophie & Madigan’s Playground will fund the equipment and other amenities.
The playground is slated to include three different “lands” — Fantasy Land, Neverland, and Wonderland — made up of custom equipment, and details reflecting the girls’ spirits and personalities.

Warehouse Cinemas is one of the first tenants of District 40, an entertainment venue set to occupy the old Frederick Towne Mall. Warehouse Cinemas is the first tenant of the entertainment venue District 40, which is expected to draw other businesses such as bowling alleys and restaurants. Currently, two more “anchor” businesses are in the process of signing leases with District 40, but no further information is available at this time.
Warehouse Cinemas wants to make going to the movies an entirely unique experience. That’s why the cinema has 28 self-serve beer taps and a full bar, why customers can bring in-house “gourmet comfort food” into the theater and why the plush leather seats recline fully and even have warmers.
Warehouse Cinemas is bringing more value to a standard movie ticket with a median ticket prices of $12, with prices starting as low as $5 on Tuesday mornings. The theater will also offer discounts for military, seniors and children.
The movie theater is expected to open later in July — pending Gov. Larry Hogan’s reopening plan — with restrictions in place. Warehouse Cinemas is prepared to open the theater at half capacity, and already has safety measures in place for the opening.
Masks will be required in the lobby and in the theater until customers are settled in their seats. When seated in the theater, and when eating or drinking, customers will be permitted to remove their masks. When buying tickets, customers will choose their own seats. The point of sale system will automatically provide a two-seat buffer — six feet — in between each group of customers.
