Riverdale, MD – The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, Department of Parks and Recreation, Prince George’s County announced today that most facilities, park maintenance operations and public events and programs will remain closed through January 31, 2022. Reopening on January 18 will be pre-registered pre-school, Before Care, After Care, and Therapeutic Recreation Programs. All parks and trails will remain open. Previously scheduled rentals at select venues will be honored. The Department will reassess the status prior to reopening.

“This proactive effort is our greatest opportunity to increase public health for the residents of Prince George’s County,” confirms Bill Tyler, Director of the M-NCPPC, Department of Parks and Recreation. “Our facilities, programs, and events provide the means for community social interaction and we are taking these steps out of an abundance of caution.”

For programs and events either cancelled or modified due to the closure, refunds will be applied to the household account. Please contact your local community center for any questions. The Department will continue to concentrate on preventive measures as indicated by public health agencies. Outdoor areas will remain open to the public from sunrise to sunset.
