In accordance with Virginia Governor Ralph Northam's Stay-at-Home order, in effect through June 10, 2020, and the "Forward Virginia" blueprint for easing public health restrictions
, the Department of Parks and Recreation is cancelling summer programs for 2020.
"We recognize how important recreation is to our residents," said Parks & Recreation Director Jane Rudolph. "We are exploring opportunities to provide modified programs and services both virtually and when our parks and community centers reopen. We appreciate your patience as we work through this difficult time."
The following programs have been canceled for the summer 2020 session:

Regarding summer camps, the County will continue to monitor national
guidance to determine what we can provide, with a decision coming in early May.
All Arlington County/Arlington Public Schools (APS) parks, playgrounds, fields, restrooms, tracks, dog parks and athletic courts remain closed until further notice.
