Howard County is embarking on developing a comprehensive land preservation, parks and recreation plan (LPPRP). Over the course of the next six months, the LPPRP will identify opportunities, challenges, and priorities for the recreation and parks system. It will result in a plan for improvements that will create a well-managed, comprehensive network of parks, trails and open spaces.

To accomplish all of this, we would like your feedback. Please provide us with your comments or questions below related to your parks, open space and programming to help guide the plan recommendations.
