Tucked away, west of Walkersville, is the beautiful 22.5 acre Fountain Rock Park. It contains one of Maryland’s strongest springs, from which 3.25 million gallons of water may flow per day. Fountain Rock Park offers something for everyone. There is a fantastic nature center filled with hands on learning activities, live animals, feathers and skulls, and so much more! Behind the Nature Center is the park’s 1 1/2 acre limestone quarry, estimated to be 25 feet deep and over 80 years old! Surrounding the quarry pond is a boardwalk that allows visitors to get a better look beneath the pond’s surface. We encourage you to hike around the park, explore the native wildlife and learn about the historic lime kilns and slaking shed on site. Park Hours: 8am Sunset. Occasional evening programs; Nature Center Hours: Saturday 10am -4pm, Sunday 1pm to 4pm
