Anne Arundel County Parks to fully reinstate admission fees on September 1

| August 29, 2020, 10:43 AM

The Anne Arundel County Department of Recreation and Parks and County Executive Steuart Pittman waived regional park fees on March 16, 2020.  By keeping the parks open and free to residents it has provided a safe respite and an opportunity to enjoy exercise and nature during the unprecedented COVID19 pandemic. Since March 2020 regional park attendance has increased as much as seventy two percent.

“During these unprecedented times our parks have been a safe haven and refuge for many of our county residents”, said Director, Rick Anthony.   “Thank you to County Executive Pittman for extending free parks to ensure our regional parks were available to provide recreation and outdoor opportunities as our residents navigated through unprecedented times”.
