Winter Weather
When winter weather is predicted, parks may be closed without notice. Please call the parks to verify if they are open. We do not treat the boardwalks and trails--they may be icy and slippery. Caution is advised when hiking.

If Calvert County schools are closed or on a delayed opening, any programs scheduled are cancelled.

Holiday Hours
