The 2-acre Taneytown Pond is the main feature of the 19.3-acre Roberts Mill Park that lies on the eastern edge of the small village of Taneytown. The spring-fed pond is accessible via an asphalt path that encircles its perimeter. There are plenty of benches dotting the shoreline to provide places for parents to rest while watching their children fish. Beyond the lake, the park includes a fenced playground, a volleyball court, picnic pavilions, restrooms and plenty of parking. The lake is shallow at the shoreline with a minimum of underwater vegetation to make casting complex.
