New Tables, Benches, Bike Racks & More…

The City of College park is putting the final touches on the installation of new streetscape furniture on the site that was formerly occupied by Little Tavern. The site now features outdoor dining tables, benches and planters. This effort is part of a series of streetscape enhancements occurring along Baltimore Avenue. Forthcoming installations will include bike racks, planters, and additional outdoor dining furniture. These enhancements were funded from a grant from the US Department of Housing & Urban Development.
