GET OUTDOORS

Date: Daily

Location: Local Parks

Details: If you are looking for a way to get your child’s energy out while still social distancing, I highly recommend taking a hike or visiting your local park to have fun on the play ground. Here’s a guide for Maryland’s Top Ten Parks. For Charles County, I highly recommend Pisgah Park. St. Mary’s County I recommend Wieck Park.
