In creating the plan of Ward Farm Recreation & Nature Park, the following principles guided the decision-making process:

  • Recognize that some uses only work in certain areas of the park
  • Access and circulation will establish the framework of uses
  • Endeavor to establish different identities for the active and passive areas of the park
  • Provide sufficient parking as convenient as possible without allowing it to overwhelm the park experience
  • Provide for multiple trail loops and experiences
  • Maintain flexibility to accommodate future uses

This is a new park in development, so there are no park signs and no facilities. 

Park is open for special events and organized activities. 

For access at other times, contact the Calvert County Parks & Recreation Division. 410-535-1600.
