Parks & Recreation Department

Parks & Recreation Department

Welcome to the Queen Anne’s County Parks and Recreation website! Parks and Recreation are back together again at the 1945 4-H Park Road, Centreville, Maryland 21617.

About the Department

Parks and Recreation encompasses Parks, Public Landings, Blue Heron Golf Course, and Bay Bridge Airport. It works with both the public and private sectors to plan, develop, maintain, preserve and enhance the County’s natural resources, open spaces and waterfront properties. These amenities serve to stimulate economic development by spurring development of hotels, restaurants, fishing charters, water activities, adventure tours and other ancillary uses of the County’s natural resources.

Responsibilities

In keeping with its mission to preserve, enhance and protect our open spaces and natural resources to enrich the quality of life for present and future generations, the Department remains focused on its objective to promote the positive image of Queen Anne’s County as a desirable place to live and visit.

The Department oversees the planning, acquisition, design, construction, maintenance and development of an extensive parks and public landings system in proportion with the growing population and development within the County.

The Queen Anne’s County Department of Parks and Recreation urges our residents and visitors to do their part to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. If you go to a park or trail to exercise, please use common sense and caution. Maintain at least 6 feet of distance between yourself and others when outside. Do not gather in groups of more than 10. Do not participate in any team and contact sports, such as basketball, football, softball and soccer. Cookouts are not permitted in our parks, until further notice. Avoid touching surfaces including playground equipment, benches, and other sports equipment that are handled by others.

Be smart. Do your part!  Read more here!
