Mission Statement

Anne Arundel County Recreation and Parks is primarily responsible for the provision of a comprehensive system of recreational programs for county residents and the preservation of valuable land in the form of more than 140 parks and sanctuaries. Specialized recreational facilities, including a swim center, golf course, baseball stadium and softball complex, programs such as school-age childcare and therapeutic recreation and more than 8000 acres of land fall under the department's jurisdiction. The department's open space includes community parks, green ways, archaeological, environmental, and historical preserves, and large regional facilities occupying several hundred acres of land.

Description

Nestled between the South River and Harness Creek, Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis offers a wide variety of family activities. Visitors can walk, jog, or bike on over 6 miles of paved trails winding through hardwood forests and past grassy fields, play at the multi-level children's playground, enjoy the vistas of the South River Promenade and Scenic Overlook, observe the beautiful colors as the leaves begin to change, or picnic among 340 acres of beautiful park land.

Boating opportunities are available seasonally. The park's Visitor Center includes formal gardens, art galleries and public restrooms.
