Remember, when we say this situation is fluid, we don’t mean like a lake. We mean like a river full of rapids. Things change quickly. Follow us on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) for the latest information and any changes about the status of parks.
While access to parks is limited because of coronavirus restrictions, the Park Authority is bringing parks to you. We’re displaying photos of natural and cultural resources in parks, and we’re offering ideas for things to do at or near your home.
The best way to stay in the loop and see the natural and cultural resources in the parks is to follow us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.
Consider it a virtual park. Join us online.
This month, artiFACTS takes a look at the painstaking process of piecing together glass and pottery fragments discovered at archaeological digs.
Learn how databases and special glue help Park Authority staff and volunteers reassemble plates, bowls and other historic objects to discover clues to the county’s past. Details are on the artiFACTS web page.
There’s no question that one of the premier public gardens in the mid-Atlantic is Green Spring Gardens.
Green Spring marks its 50th anniversary this year, and we’ve taken time to look back and see how the park came to be and to revisit the history of this land where flowers grow.
Explore Green Spring history on the park blog.
