The Loudoun County Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services (PRCS) is open virtually while its centers are closed and programs canceled in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. "We wanted to make sure that Loudoun’s citizens can engage with us during this temporary closure and that we continue creating community through people, parks and programs," said Steve Torpy, PRCS Director.
The department launched a new webpage at loudoun.gov/prcscreatingcommunity featuring video playlists, a rotating video spotlight, virtual tours, how-to guides, children’s activities, community resources and more. The page includes links to all of all of the department’s Facebook pages, where followers can find engaging posts and videos daily. "We’re temporarily closed, but we’re here for you digitally as we learn to navigate this new environment. The response to the page has been positive and we feel that it may continue to serve citizens after normal operations resume," said Torpy.
County parks remain open for self-directed trail and leisure use while practicing social distancing. Visit loudoun.gov/prcs or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
