IMPORTANT UPDATE: In the interest of public safety and to slow the spread of COVID-19 in Harford County, Harford County Parks and Recreation programs have been canceled and indoor facilities and outdoor playgrounds, basketball courts, skate park and pavilions are closed until further notice. Parks and trails will be open as long as social distancing is maintained. No groups or teams will be allowed. Cedar Lane Sports Complex is closed - fields and walking path.
Just because your home doesn’t mean you still can’t experience what Parks & Recreation has to offer. Each week we will be updating a fun video to watch at home!
This week we have Lauren, one of our Park Naturalists from Anita C. Leight Estuary Center, introducing you to and talking about their diamondback terrapin!
