Frederick County Parks & Rec Programs & Events
5 March 2021
We pre-recorded today’s conversation via Zoom to chat with Tony Baker & Chris Konyar from Frederick County Parks & Recreation about some upcoming events and spring programs.
Chris told us about Trails for Miles for Autism race that will happen on April 10, 2021 at Sherando Park. This second annual race is a combination four mile race through the paved paths and wooded trails of Sherando Park. Proceeds from the race will benefit the I’m Just Me Movement and The Arc of the Northern Shenandoah Valley as April is Autism Awareness Month. Due to COVID, pre-registration is required for this event. Click here for all the details/registration information.
Chris also gave us the details for the Youth Trout Derby that will happen at Clear Brook Park on Friday, May 7, 2021 from 5:30pm – 8pm. Families are encouraged to bring their young anglers (ages 4-14) for this FREE event to catch stocked trout and other fish. This is a rain or shine event with no registration required, but a RSVP is helpful to get event updates and future fishing adventures. Participants must bring their own fishing pole, bait, tackle and gear to reel in that big one. Awards and door prizes are in the works to make for the best fishing experience this year!

We also talked about other programs that are currently open for registration or have/will be starting in the coming weeks such as tennis, Little League, adult softball and more.
Finally, Tony reminded us about the new exercise equipment at Clear Brook Park, the Story Walk & trails now open at Bowman Library, and their new program in partnership with PRO Physical Therapy/PRO Motion: Frederick County Community Fitness.
