It offers an opportunity for DPR to offer healthy lifestyle programming, track and field training, and local events on-site. The track will complement other on-site recreational activities, allowing users to walk or jog as a warm-up or cool down to other activities. The small field area at the center of the track could allow for exercise classes such as yoga, Tai Chi, or exercise boot camps; for small-sized soccer practices, or running (football, soccer, lacrosse, etc.) drills.
The Track and Field facility, including the small playing field area, will be available for programming by the Department and available to the community to use during the midday, evening, and weekend hours while not in use by the University of Maryland Track and Field team. (Team practices are typically about four hours a day, during the Fall and Spring seasons, concentrated in the morning and late afternoon hours. The University intends to host approximately five competitive track meets during the Spring on weekends.)
