"Nace Hopkins was a leader for the [African Americans] of Trappe. He gave his service to the building of God's Church and was the founder of The Emancipation Celebration Day Known as Nace's Day." (History of Scott's United Methodist Church) [edited]
Nace's Park is Trappe's newest park. The purchase of this property and the demolition of a derelict building which previously occupied this site was made possible through a $200,000 grant from CDBG and an additional $100,000+ of hard earned taxpayer’s funds from the coffers of the Town of Trappe. The granted $200,000 came with a seven-year stipulation that the park had to remain open space.
The Lakeview Park, located on Harrison Circle, features play equipment, a picnic pavilion, grills and a water fountain. Improvements to the park were funded through the State of Maryland Community Parks and Playground program, a division of Program Open Space, and completed in 2008.
Veterans Memorial Park is located on Main Street at the former site of the Trappe High School building and is directly in front of the old Trappe Ball Park and Talbot County playground. A large gazebo was added in 2012 and is available for use by the public at no charge. The park also features picnic tables, park benches, and a water fountain.
