If you need a fun and relaxing activity on Sunday evenings, try the Md. Parks and Recreation Summer Concerts. They usually take place 7-8pm. on Sundays from June-August. Check out the line-up for your favorite type of music. Bring a blanket/chair and snacks and enjoy!

This is the biggest park in Bowie that I am aware of and is a really nice park for all ages. Between the play areas, fields, and the walking paths around the pond, it makes for a relaxing day.

There are concerts,... More
