While parks remain open, certain features within parks are now closed.
Governor Hogan’s recent “Stay at Home” order still allows and encourages residents to get outside to bike, walk, run, and more while adhering to the social distancing guidelines and limiting the number of people to 10 or less. The City aims to keep the parks open for public use and, to do so, will be taking additional steps to support community safety.
Beginning today, April 1, 2020, all City park playgrounds, pavilions, basketball courts, tennis courts, in-line rinks, and skate parks are closed.
The City thanks the public for their cooperation and encourages all to use parks local and adjacent to one’s neighborhood to limit non-essential travel.
Since declaring a State of Emergency on March 13, 2020, Mayor Michael O’Connor and The City of Frederick have been committed to maintaining operations that are critical to the life, health, and safety of our residents. The City has also focused on the delivery of all additional City services through alternative means to keep City employees and the public safe.
