Parks & Recreation

The Town maintains recreational areas which allow fishing, hiking, sports, skate boarding, picnicking, relaxing and many more activities. With acres of varying natural surroundings, the Mount Airy parks have been carefully planned and developed for your outdoor pleasures. Parks are open from dawn to dusk. Picnic pavilions and gazebos can be reserved at any time by calling the Mount Airy Town Hall at (301) 829-1424; reservations should be made early in the year.
