City of Cumberland Parks & Recreation Department Makes Seasonal Update Announcements:

1. The Constitution Park pool opening is delayed and will remain closed

until further notice. We are preparing the Park pool and are hopeful to open

for the 2020 pool season, however we cannot do so until Governor Hogan

gives the order to open outdoor swimming pools. Once that order is given,

we must collaborate with the local health department to ensure a safe

we remain optimistic and will provide updates as they become available.

2. No pavilion use or rentals will be permitted at Constitution Park until

further notice.
