M-NCPPC recreation buildings (sometimes called recreation centers) are different than community centers. Recreation buildings are unstaffed and are located within neighborhood parks. They are suitable sites for birthday parties, bridal showers, and other family or community events.

Most recreation buildings have picnic areas adjacent to the buildings and these areas are included in the rental permit. When having a daytime picnic the capacity is generally 100 people (inside/outside combined) and 7pm is the latest a group can stay outside. Picnic areas have picnic tables and grills but renters may bring a portable grill into the picnic area. (Please note that the Suitland Water Tank does not have an adjacent picnic area.)

Recreation buildings may be reserved for one period per day. The rental block includes event time as well as set-up, decorating, and clean-up. It is up to the renter to provide set-up and take-down of tables and chairs. The maximum capacity for the buildings is provided by the fire marshal and is not to be exceeded.

All recreation buildings and Adelphi Mill will require a deposit (cash or Visa/Mastercard) that will cover security requirements of the rental policies, building upkeep, and key pickup/return.  Renters must be a Prince George's or Montgomery County resident and over 21 years old to reserve a site. To rent a recreation building, please contact the Park Permits Office at 301-699-2400.

  • $25 change fee will be charged for paid reservations that switch to another location or move to another date (must be requested 30 days before event date).
  • $25 late fee will be charged for Friday key and permit pick-ups
