Renovations are Coming to Rosemary Hills-Lyttonsville Local Park in Chevy Chase

Renovations are coming to Strathmore Local Park in Aspen Hill, thanks to bond bill funding, according to Montgomery Parks. The park will have renovations to the loop trail, upgrades to the courts and fields, and new bike racks, seating, and other amenities. “We’re grateful to Delegate Vaughn Stewart, Delegate Bonnie Cullison, Charlotte Crutchfield – State Delegate for Maryland D19, and Senator Benjamin Kramer for making this project possible.”

Montgomery Parks received $12.3 million in funding from the state of Maryland to be used towards 17 park projects, which might otherwise have been delayed or possibly canceled. Projects range from the development of a new urban park to the creation of a new action sports park to new active recreation amenities and updating of aging playgrounds and infrastructure.
“We are so appreciative of the support from our state legislators and the funding that will go towards so many great park projects. Our recent Parks, Recreation and Open Space plan confirms that parks are a top priority for communities. The public depends upon us to deliver beautiful parks for exercising and recreating, socializing, and enjoying nature. Thanks to this support, we can deliver more projects by matching state funding with our own capital funding,” said Mike Riley, director of Montgomery Parks.

A complete list of park projects made possible by the recently secured state funds includes:

  • A new 3.5-acre urban park in downtown Bethesda to be located on parts of Parking Lot District lots 10 and 24 as part of the Bethesda Market redevelopment
