Greenwell is a 596-acre State Park located on the Patuxent River in St. Mary's County, Maryland. In 1971, John Phillip Greenwell, Jr. and his sister, Mary Wallace Greenwell, donated their 166.6 acre farm to the State of Maryland for use as a public park for everyone. The state subsequently purchased the adjacent 430-acre Bond property and joined the two to form the existing park. The park is managed in partnership with The Greenwell Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing outdoor accessible recreation.
The Greenwell Foundation, Inc. (http://www.greenwellfoundation.org/) is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization that works in partnership with the Maryland Park Service to provide accessible and inclusive programs, services and facilities for all community members, with and without disabilities, in Southern Maryland. The Foundation is based in Greenwell State Park.
The Greenwell Foundation offers therapeutic and recreational riding lessons, summer camp and nature camps, kayaking, accessible site rentals and is regularly developing new programs to meet community needs. More than 40,000 people visit the park annually, more than 500 people have participated in programs, and more than 1,000 people used the park's accessible facilities for family events and celebrations.
A focal point of the property is Rosedale Manor, circa 1880, which is situated on the shoreline of the Patuxent River. The Manor features a Victorian-style rose garden, a family chapel and a spectacular view of the river.
Greenwell State Park offers an accessible office, trail to boat dock, day use area shelter and comfort station. Accessible therapeutic horseback riding is available through the Greenwell Foundation. More than 100 volunteers regularly support the Foundation's programs by serving as volunteers in a therapeutic riding program, in the Foundation office, and by helping to maintain the park gardens, grounds, trails and facilities. If you would like more information, please refer to the volunteer section of this website.

This park is supported by Maryland’s Veterans Conservation Corps (VCC), a program modeled after the Maryland Conservation Corps. The VCC works with the Maryland Park Service and the Department of Natural Resources on conservation projects in areas such as recreation enhancement, park operations, wetland restoration, facility improvements, and trail maintenance and construction. Corps Members are trained in relevant, enriching, and marketable skills such as Emergency Medical Responder, chain saw safety, hazardous tree removal, Search and Rescue, trail construction, Environmental Education/Interpretation, and invasive species removal.
Maryland's Veterans Conservation Corps program helps empower veterans during their transition from military service to civilian life by leveraging their unique background and service ethic with the therapeutic value of the outdoors and professional skills development, while they address pressing conservation needs on public lands.
