Is there a park in my community?
Prince George's County has more than 27,000 acres of parkland. Approximately one third has been developed to provide active and passive recreation opportunities. It is very likely that there is a park facility in or near you. The Department of Parks and Recreation publishes hiker/biker trail maps and guides to the many historic, arts and cultural sites that are part of the park system. You can call us at 301-699-2255 or 301-699-2544 (for Teletypewriter) to tell us where you live and what your interests are. We'll help you find a park or recreation facility near you.
