Parks and Recreation

CCPR Modified Services and Operating Hours:

In order to provide the best possible experience for facility patrons, the Calvert County Department of Parks & Recreation announces that it will adjust hours and services of various Parks & Recreation facilities, due to seasonal staff shortages.  If you are interested in a position with Parks and Recreation please apply at:

The following modifications are currently in effect:

Park hours will remain the same with reduced services. All parks will have limited or no staff onsite during evening events Monday through Friday, however Dunkirk District Park, Cove Point Park, Hallowing Point Park and Ward Farm Park will be fully staffed on Saturdays and Sundays.

The conditions of playing surfaces will not be serviced between events (e.g., fields will not be dragged, relined, raked, or have base settings changed). Routine maintenance at other facilities may be delayed (e.g., bathrooms cleaned, courts cleared, trash cans emptied, etc.).
