Grand Reopening of Edith Throckmorton Neighborhood Park on May 7 in Kensington

Montgomery Parks will celebrate the reopening of Edith Throckmorton Neighborhood Park(opens in a new tab) on Saturday, May 7, 2022, at 11 a.m. The rain date is May 14, 2022, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. The celebration of the park renovation is free and open to the public and will include a brief speaking program, ribbon-cutting ceremony, and light refreshments. The park is located at 3925 Hampden Street, Kensington, MD 20895.

“The renovation of this park is remarkable. By modifying the space and adding new amenities, this park has been transformed from what was mostly just a playground to a place for people to gather with friends and neighbors, for kids to play, and for all to appreciate the natural setting of the Rock Creek stream valley,” said Mike Riley, director of Montgomery Parks. The newly renovated park includes:

  • A multi-level playground and nature play area
  • Community open space
  • Boardwalk and terrace
  • Tables, chairs, and benches
  • A ping pong table, and
  • Interpretive signage about the park’s namesake, Edith Throckmorton

Edith Throckmorton Neighborhood Park was acquired by M-NCPPC in 1992. The park was dedicated to Throckmorton, a local civil rights activist, in 1982 by the Ken-Gar Civic Association.
