In August 2021, the Senate President and House Speaker created the State Park Investment Commission.

The Commission charge was to make recommendations on the need for new parks in “recreational deserts”, and determine whether existing parks are accessible to certain populations, such as low-income Marylanders, those without a car, and persons with disabilities.

Moreover, the Commission was to investigate and make recommendations regarding overcrowding in Maryland State parks, and the need for new State park offerings. It considered the adequacy of existing State park facilities to meet demand for recreational opportunities in the State; levels of operating funding and staff for existing State parks, and the need for capital funding to provide a high-quality experience to park visitors.

On December 17, 2021, the Commission submitted its report to the Senate President and House Speaker.
