What to do this weekend

Each weekend Howard County Recreation and Parks puts on several events at county locations. Our "What to do this weekend" page will be updated during the week with events for the coming weekend. 

Howard County Parks
Howard County offers its citizens regional, community, and neighborhood parks containing sports facilities, recreation areas for picnics, and scenic outdoor trails for hiking and exploring. Nearly all Howard County public parks have playground areas, but we also have several stand-alone playgrounds that are not located within a traditional park. We also have an off-leash area at Worthington Park for the enjoyment of four-legged citizens accompanied by their owners.
