PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – The Calvert County Department of Parks & Recreation will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of Ward Farm Recreation and Nature Park. The ceremony will be held Tuesday, March 8 at 2 p.m. at 10455 Ward Road in Dunkirk. Citizens are invited to attend and enjoy the many amenities offered at the new park.

“We are ecstatic to celebrate this momentous occasion with our community,” said Parks & Recreation Director Shannon Nazzal. “Although this is merely the first phase of what we have planned for Ward Farm, we are excited to invite citizens to enjoy the current amenities and look forward to the many years of active and passive recreation opportunities this park will offer.”

The new park currently features multiple multi-use athletic fields, nature trails, paved pathways and a fishing pier. Future construction will add boardwalks overlooking ponds and wetlands, a nature/environmental center, picnic shelters, a disc golf course, playgrounds, camping space and more.

  The Ward Farm Recreation & Nature Park property was purchased by the county government in 2013 and the master plan for the park completed in 2015.

  1. Thanks to the Wards for leaving their farm to the Community, I’m glad they put that roundabout in because there’s a lot of cars driving fast on ward rd now, I like it when the road was closed.
