Quarry Lake is a manmade lake in Pikesville, Maryland. It is one of the deepest lakes in the state. The lake is surrounded by mixed residential development and commercial development, including single-family homes, condominiums, shops, and office buildings.


Throughout the 2000s, construction has been underway for a new development now known as Quarry Lake at Greenspring, which is located between Old Court Road and Smith Avenue. This came after an agreement was reached in 1999 to allow for the development.[2]

In 2005, a rock-breaking ceremony was held.[3]

In 2006 and 2007, some commercial properties on the premises opened, including medical office space of Lifebridge Health, Walgreens, and The Fresh Market.

The development also features 83 single-family homes and 500 condos.

The center of the development features is 40-acre (160,000 m2) lake, which is 500 feet (150 m) deep, one of the deepest lakes in the state of Maryland.[1]
