Broadneck Peninsula Trail: The first phase of the development of this planned 8.7 mile east-west recreational trail began in 2012. When completed, the trail will link Sandy Point State Park with the B&A Trail in Arnold. The park will also provide links to Anne Arundel Community College, elementary and middle schools, Broadneck High School, Broadneck Library, and community parks.  The section will be a part of the American Discovery Trail.

Water

With the Magothy River on one side and the Severn River on the other, Severna Park is perfect for anyone who enjoys fishing, boating or other water activities. Many Severna Park communities have beaches and/or community green spaces along the water which offer swimming and water sports, further enhancing the community feel. Some larger neighborhoods, even those not on the water, also have community marinas or boat ramps.  

B&A Trail

The Baltimore and Annapolis Trail is a 13.3 mile paved trail that begins in Glen Burnie and passes through Pasadena, Severna Park, Arnold, that then ends in Annapolis.  The trail follows a former rail line from 1968 and is popular with joggers, walkers and bikers. The trail is easily accessible by Severna Park residents as most of the neighborhoods adjacent to it have entry points to access the trail.  The trail is highlighted by historic markers and the NASA-sponsored Planet Walk.
