In recent years, Maryland’s state and county parks have steadily seen an increase in visitors. This growth has led to an engaged and diverse group of park attendees, but it also puts a strain on park resources. On busy days –sometimes within an hour of opening– popular state parks turn away families who arrive after the parking lots reach capacity.
How are park officials, at a state and county level, working to balance growing popularity with the need for park preservation? And as the Washington region becomes increasingly urban, how can parks stay accessible and relevant to all?
- Nita Settina Maryland State Parks Superintendent
- Michael Riley Director, Montgomery Parks
