by MCS Staff

Montgomery Parks is unveiling the concept plan for the new South Silver Spring Park(opens in a new tab) planned for 1110 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, Md., at the former National Tire and Battery site.

The concept plan(opens in a new tab) for the new park was developed based on recommendations in the Silver Spring Downtown and Adjacent Communities Plan(opens in a new tab) and extensive community feedback gathered through an open house and online surveys. Many of the amenities specifically requested by the community are incorporated in the concept plan, including a promenade, picnic area, fitness area, stage, dog run, bocce, multi-sports court, drinking fountain, age-specific playgrounds and nature play areas, and games.  Plantings will include street trees, shade and flowering trees, bioretention areas and landscape beds for pollinator-friendly plants.

“We are excited to be creating a first-class urban park in the heart of downtown Silver Spring, where nearby residents can gather with their friends and families to enjoy a variety of activities and amenities,” said Mike Riley, director of Montgomery Parks, “We recognize the important role this park will play for this community, and we are moving swiftly to get it built and open to the public.”

The South Silver Spring concept plan(opens in a new tab) is posted on the project page(opens in a new tab) on Montgomery Parks website. Montgomery Parks staff are working on refining the park concept plan and anticipate demolishing the building on site in the spring of 2023.
