With over 100 miles of bike and walking trails, Prince George’s County already has some excellent spaces for recreation and transportation. But it is a big county, and those trails only go so far and reach so many residents.

Over the next 25 years, the Department of Parks and Recreation hopes to dramatically expand the current trail system to an impressive 400 miles. They want your help to plan where these new trails should go, where new connections are needed, and what they should look like.

The Prince George’s County Department of Parks and Recreation is hosting three open houses in June to discuss its Trails Master Plan. The open houses will help drive the discussion to customize trails to include features that residents want most. A key goal for the plan is to make at least one trail within a 15-minute walk or bike ride from most residents.

We hope you can attend one of the meetings. Together, we can shape the future of biking in Prince George’s County!
