Therapeutic Recreation

About Us

Frederick County Parks and Recreation offers Therapeutic Recreation (TR) programs designed to meet the needs of individuals with various disabilities and health conditions and emphasize participants’ unique abilities. Programs utilize trained staff, adapted spaces and equipment, and a high staff/participant ratio to provide a positive experience for participants.

Our Goal

The goal of the TR programs is to enhance health and well-being, sense of self and community, and overall quality of life by facilitating the development of leisure and recreation skills, fostering independence, and promoting socialization.

What We Offer

The TR staff are dedicated to providing enjoyable, original, inclusive, and accessible recreational experiences for the participants. Our programs include various sports, arts, social clubs, fitness, and more.


Reasonable accommodations are also offered to individuals who need additional support to encourage and enable them to fully participate in our general recreation programs of their choice. Reasonable accommodations are based on each individual’s abilities and needs.
