Anne Arundel County Executive Laura Neuman today announced that effective November 1 citizens who visit the county’s four major parks will enjoy a 50 percent reduction in parking fees and permits.

“One of this administration’s top priorities has been finding ways we can reduce the financial burden on our citizens, and I am pleased that we have found another way to do so by reducing park fees,” said County Executive Neuman. “We are very fortunate that the county recently has experienced increased economic development, affording us an opportunity to cut fees in a way that has the greatest impact on all citizens.”

Visitors to Quiet Waters, Downs, Fort Smallwood and Kinder Farm parks will pay only $3 for daily parking fees (previously $6) as well as handicapped parking. Parking for veterans and members of the military will remain free. Additionally, annual and lifetime senior parking permits will be available for sale for $20 (previously $40). Daily bus permits will remain $30.

“We have wonderful parks here in the county that significantly improve the quality of life for our citizens, and by reducing these fees we are ensuring that the county’s natural resources and the new boat ramp to be built at Fort Smallwood Park are more accessible to everyone,” County Executive Neuman stated.
