Five Things to Do in March

single news

We might be halfway through the month but there’s still plenty left to do in March. Now that the weather has turned (fingers crossed) we encourage you to get outside and enjoy one of our many parks and trails; take a new class; or sign your child up one of our spring break camps—spots are still available! If you’re out exploring our parks, we encourage you to sign up for our free PWC Parks Explorer Pass to make it even more fun! With the pass you can track your park visits and earn points toward cool park prizes every time you visit a park in Prince William County. Additional points can be earned for completing “Things to Do” within our parks.
