We pre-recorded today’s conversation over Zoom with Tony Baker & Jason Brown from Frederick County Parks & Recreation to talk about their fall programs as well as their BasicREC program. The before and after school program is contingent upon the final decision of Frederick County Public Schools so many of their details cannot yet be released. However, Jason explained how their summer camp program worked and the safety precautions put in place that will transfer to the full time BasicREC program. Tony also told us about their fall programs and reminded everyone of all the outdoor activities available at all the county parks. The pools are open and registration is still happening for flag football and flag football cheer. He also told us that they’re working on dates for Paws to Pavement events. Paws to Pavement is a partnership between Frederick County Parks and Recreation and the Esther Boyd Animal Shelter to promote wellness, adoptable dogs, and community parks. Esther Boyd will be bringing several adoptable dogs to the park, where volunteers can pick a pup and take them on a walk around Clear Brook Park trail . This event helps promote animal adoption and a better quality of life for local shelter dogs!
