Worcester County Recreation and Parks Reopening to the Public

Worcester County Recreation and Parks (WCRP) closed to the public on March 13 to follow Governor Larry Hogan’s orders to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In keeping with Maryland’s Roadmap to Recovery, WCRP staff announced that all county parks are now open, and the Worcester County Recreation Center (WCRC) in Snow Hill will be reopening its doors.

“We are so happy to open back up,” Program Manager Myro Small said. “Our daily walkers, program participants, and community members have been greatly missed! We appreciate everyone’s patience during this difficult time, and we cannot wait to see you all very soon.”

As of June 15, parks and all amenities have reopened, including fields, playgrounds, pavilions, basketball courts, tennis courts, and portable toilets. All patrons should adhere to the posted signs throughout the parks and social distance accordingly.

The WCRC in Snow Hill will be opening at 50% capacity to the public on Monday, June 22. However, open recreation, including drop in basketball, will not be offered at this time. The building hours will be from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Beginning July 6, the WCRC will resume normal operating hours. Patrons are invited to utilize the walking track and exercise in the fitness room. Masks should be worn by everyone entering the building, and all individuals should social distance themselves from others. Beginning the week of July 6, WCRC fitness classes and summer camp will begin.
