Modified Fitness Class Schedule for summer 2020 under COVID-19 guidelines.

Kidz Zone babysitting is not open as this time and will remain closed until further notice. Additionally, the rock wall is closed and we are not lending out basketballs to members and guests right now. We do apologize for these inconveniences.

Memberships reactivated effective 6/25/2020. All memberships were extended the amount of time PMRC was closed. Memberships are not refunded as outlined in the membership packet and in the wavier that you signed when you registered. The extension of your membership serves as the credit of time lost during the COVID-19 shutdown. Therefore, all memberships reactivated Thursday, June 25, 2020, not the date you return to the facility. If you have any questions or concerns, please email Melissa Brown at mnbrown@annapolis.gov.

Harbormaster

Truxtun Park and Tucker Street boat ramps are open.

The pump-out boat service is temporarily suspended for the safety of our employees during COVID-19 to prevent the Coronavrius being transmitted through aerosolized sewage. All boaters have the responsibility to pump out at self-serve pumpouts. Or alternatively, use a marina restroom. The following land-based pumpout stations are open and functional:

  • Chesapeake Harbor
  • Sandy Point State Park
  • Mears Marina
  • Port Annapolis, by appointment

If you know anyone that is pumping sewage into our waterway, please contact us so that we may take swift and decisive enforcement action. If you need help finding a pump-out station, we are happy to assist you.
