Beginning, Wednesday, July 1, Prince George’s County will be reopening more amenities to the community as part of the County’s efforts to slowly reopen. The County continues to consult with and follow the guidance of health officials. The County has worked closely with the senior leadership team to coordinate operational procedures, guidelines and processes, secure personal protective equipment (PPE), and create signage for the staff and public so that we can safely reopen the following facilities:
- All outdoor pools with reduced capacity. Pools will also have shorter operating hours on July 4.
- Trap and Skeet Center
- Bladensburg Waterfront Park and Patuxent River Park with limited access to the boat ramp, canoe and kayak launch dock.
- Select permitted athletic fields. Patrons will be directed to email Athletic.Permits@pgparks.com with questions.
Beginning, Wednesday, July 8, we will be reopening:
- Cosca, Fairland, and Watkins tennis bubbles with court reservations accepted, starting Thursday, July 2 by phone and online.
The Director of M-NCPPC, Department of Parks and Recreation has personally visited the facilities to see the set-up and review the plans to ensure a comfort level with what is expected.
The County will also be providing expanded services, hours and programs at our three golf courses, including restarting our junior golf program, First Tee. Additionally, Prince George’s County is cancelling all outdoor festivals and large events through October 31, 2020. In accordance with the County Executive’s Order “…planned larger gatherings and events must be cancelled or postponed…[CDC and MDH social distancing protocols must be followed…]”
