Show/Hide

In an effort to slow the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Parks and Recreation Department has taken the following steps:

  • The Herndon Community Center is closed until further notice. 
  • Summer camp and program registration is postponed. Full-day summer camps; Herndon Odyssey, Teen Discovery, and Preschool camp are canceled. As the vision for summer becomes more clear, and we are able to prepare sufficiently and depending on the health of our community, we may offer a limited number of specialty camps in the late summer. Summer registration info will be updated mid-July.
  • All park amenities in the Town of Herndon are open except restrooms. Athletic fields are open for non-permitted use. Remember to bring drinking water. Please practice physical distancing.
