RIVERDALE, Md. – Due to the forecast of extreme heat, M-NCPPC, Department of Parks and Recreation, Prince George’s County afternoon outdoor events scheduled for Saturday, June 22 are canceled. The health and safety of the community is the Department’s top priority.

The Department of Parks and Recreation has established cooling centers throughout the county. The centers will provide air-conditioned spaces. Hours of operation will vary by location. Visit to verify times for each cooling center location. Additionally, all 6 indoor and 7 outdoor pools will remain open to provide additional opportunities for the community to remain cool and hydrated. Outdoor pools are extremely popular and tend to reach capacity early in the day/ session. Advanced reservations are encouraged to ensure patrons can be admitted to the pools. Drop-in/day admission will remain available until the pool’s operating capacity.

The Department’s Summer kick-off, Teen Fest, will proceed as scheduled at Allentown Splash, Tennis, and Fitness Park on Saturday, June 22, from 4-8 pm. The event will feature food, refreshing treats, music and pool activities. We encourage teens to join us for a fun and safe celebration.
