1. The Edgeley Grove section of the Ma & Pa Trail from Tollgate Road to the Winters Run bridge will be closed from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and some Saturdays from October 5 until December 1, 2020.  The closure will allow for improvements to address drainage issues and reduce washouts along this section of the trail. When it’s closed, no one will be allowed on the section, which is about seven-tenths of a mile long. Which Saturdays the trail will be closed will be determined by each week’s progress. Rain on weekdays could necessitate closing the trail on Saturday to keep the project on schedule.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: On Monday, June 29, we will begin a gradual, limited reopening of our indoor Parks & Recreation facilities for recreation council or P&R program activities, by appointment only. Please check with your local P&R office for details.

Parks, trails, and playgrounds are open as long as social distancing is maintained. Please contact your rec council for information about the status of their programs. Pavilion rentals will resume on July 1 for outdoor gatherings. Click here to see pavilion options.

Effective June 1, 2020 use of Harford County Parks and Recreation fields/outdoor facilities for group use are by permit only.
