New & Ongoing Projects

The Department of Parks and Recreation manages close to 400 parks on more than 28,000 acres of parkland. The Park Planning and Development Division works closely with the community and elected officials to assess needs and determine priorities for parks and recreation facilities in Prince George’s County. 

Parkland is acquired through capital improvement, grants, mandatory dedication, and surplus property programs.

The design, engineering, and management of park and building construction are the responsibility of professional staff. The Department of Parks and Recreation also works with contractors and bidders of all sizes and areas of expertise.
