Betterton Beach COVID-19 Policy

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, until further notice, Kent County Parks and Recreation has implemented the policy that the beach is to Kent County Residents only for the purposes of exercising and enjoying fresh air.  This policy is to reduce crowding at the beach and the potential spread of the virus.  Please review the attached guidance notice issued by Kent County as it contains important details.
Many people own property in our town, but do not have a MD ID resulting in many questions about what consists of proof of Kent County residency.  In order to make it as simple as possible, Kent County Parks and Recreation is requesting each family have a document showing their Kent County property address with them as well as a picture ID (from any state) that matches the name on the bill.
The following are examples of acceptable proof of residency for each family utilizing the beach:
  • Water bill from the Town of Betterton
  • Utility bill showing property address
  • Tax Bill from Kent County
  • Mortgage statement showing property address
  • SDAT sheet from Kent County
Betterton Beach is owned and supervised by Kent County Department of Parks and Recreation, and any questions regarding the beach should be directed to them.  They can be reached at 410-778-1948 or info@kentparksandrec.org.
