ORIGIN & FUNCTIONS


DEPARTMENT OF RECREATION, PARKS & TOURISM

In the 1950s, the Department of Recreation, Parks, and Tourism originated as the Department of Recreation and Parks. In 1997, it was restructured under its present name when divisons of recreation, parks, and tourism were joined with the operations of the Civic Center, an indoor stadium.

The Department is responsible for the organization and conduct of County public recreation and parks. It also oversees the organization and conduct of all public parks, playgrounds, and other recreational facilities (Code Local Government Article, secs. 1-601 through 1-611; County Code, secs. 70-1; 179-1 through 179-14).
