The Naming of the Lake
This lake is typical of all Maryland's lakes in that it requires a dam. There are no natural lakes in Maryland. The average depth of Lake Habeeb is 30 feet with some areas as deep as 90 feet.
The park was formally opened on July 17, 1974. The lake was later dedicated on September 18, 1976.
