We are fortunate to reside among some of the best parks and recreational facilities around. Montgomery County boasts almost 34,000 acres of parkland, of which 9,000 is developed and the rest set aside for environmental preservation. There are a total of 407 parks scattered throughout the county, offering a variety of amenities – whether your recreation preferences are athletic or aesthetic! Both neighborhood and local parks, trails, rental facilities, natural attractions, ice rinks, tennis, equestrian centers, as well as heritage and historical sites are available for your enjoyment. Special events are hosted at various parks throughout the county.

If you enjoy walking, hiking or running, either paved or natural surface trails are at your disposal. Athletic fields, playgrounds and tennis courts are scattered throughout many of the parks. There are event centers available for you to rent for special occasions ranging from family reunions to parties to weddings.

Wheaton Regional Park spans 536 acres, and is home to Pine Lake, horse trails and stables, tennis courts, a miniature train, an historic carousel, an ice rink, a dog park and more. On the other side of this park is Brookside Gardens and Nature Center, a 50-acre, award-winning public display garden, with several distinct garden areas. With two conservatories, a visitors center, lectures, workshops and a children’s center, Brookside Gardens is a place to visit over and over, no matter what the season is! McCrillis Gardens in Bethesda, which is managed by Brookside Gardens, is a beautiful shade garden.

Black Hill Regional Park, located in Boyds, is onmore than 1,800 acres, offering such a variety of activities that you will keep coming back for more! Boating, fishing and camping make for a glorious weekend getaway that will give you the feeling of a mini vacation. Boat tours and water trails are available for the water lovers’ enjoyment, and you can bring your own or rent a canoe or kayak on the premises. There are trails for hikers, bicyclists and equestrians (please take note of trailer parking), as well as camping facilities to relax and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you. Here’s a video to give you a taste of Black Hill:

For those who enjoy visiting historical sites, aside from the rich history of our Nation’s Capitol, Montgomery County has rich sites to see, as well! The Paint Branch Trail is a naturally shaded 3 mile trail, passing both Valley Mill and the former site of Snowden Mill, which date back to the 1700’s, and are among the oldest mills in the county. The Josiah Henson site, formerly called “Riley Farm/Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” is located on Old Georgetown Road in North Bethesda. These are just a couple of historical sites, right in your back yard!

Check out the Parks Department’s suggestions on “Green Getaways.” The site offers information on some of the best places for bird, butterfly and other wildlife watching, mountain biking (strenuous trails included), fishing and much more.
