As you may know, being prepared and taking preventive measures are the keys to keeping you and your family members healthy.
In response to the evolving circumstances with the COVID-19 virus, beginning Monday, March 16, 2020, Montgomery Parks, part of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) is closing all indoor park facilities to the public. The department is cancelling all programming, classes and events taking place in parks and at park facilities through March 31.
