|Vol. 2 Issue 12 – Senior Saturday!
It’s summer here in Maryland and the 3 H’s- Hazy, Hot and Humid are out in full force. We hope everyone is finding ways to stay cool as this heat wave continues on into the weekend. Please remember to stay hydrated and if you feel like you need a cooling station…
Cooling Station Locations Open to the General Public:
In partnership with Prince George’s County emergency management, designated M-NCPPC Department of Parks and Recreation facilities will offer a cooling area with seating any time temperatures reach 90 degrees or higher. You may have people coming into these sites to get out of the heat; please offer them appropriate hospitality.
The following M-NCPPC facilities will be open from 10 am – 8 pm Monday through Friday, and during normal business hours for each site on Saturday and Sunday. All residents are asked check in at the facility’s front desk upon arrival. The County’s 311 information system, local media, and websites are sharing the locations of our Cooling Stations and encouraging people to use them if needed.
Our nearest cooling station is located at the College Park Community Center located at 5051 Pierce Ave
