Recreation Center and Parks Reopen

Worcester County Recreation and Parks closed to the public on March 13, and since followed Governor Larry Hogan’s orders to prevent the spread of COVID-19. With the updated news to Maryland’s Roadmap to Recovery, Worcester County Recreation and Parks is excited to announce that all county parks are now open and the Worcester County Recreation Center will be reopening their doors.

As of June 15, parks and all amenities have reopened, including fields, playgrounds, pavilions, basketball courts, tennis courts, and portable toilets. All patrons should adhere to the posted signs throughout the parks and social distance accordingly. 

The Recreation Center will be opening at 50% capacity to the public on Monday, June 22. The building hours will be from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and starting July 6, the WCRC will resume normal operating hours. Patrons are invited to utilize the walking track and exercise in the fitness room. Masks should be worn by everyone entering the building and should social distance from others. Beginning the week of July 6 WCRC Fitness classes and Summer Camp will begin.

Program Manager Myro Small states, “We are so happy to open back up. Our daily walkers, program participants, and community members have been greatly missed! We appreciate everyone’s patience during this difficult time and cannot wait to see you all very soon.”
