The public is encouraged to take a brief online survey to share their suggestions. Montgomery Parks, part of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, is seeking ideas for a new park in downtown Bethesda and is encouraging the public to share suggestions by taking a brief online survey. Comments from the survey will be used in developing concept plans for the park, which will be presented to the public in May. “This green space will be a gathering place for people across the county to recreate, relax, and gather in an urban setting,” said Linda Komes, project manager and landscape architect. “We are really interested to hear from the public about what they’d like to see here because there are so many opportunities to make it a unique destination.”
The Bethesda Market Park project will repurpose two parking lots adjacent to the historic Montgomery Farm Women’s Cooperative Market. When completed, the park and the adjacent Elm Street Urban Park will provide approximately four acres of urban park space in downtown Bethesda. The parks department hosted two in-person meetings on March 15 and 16 to present details about the project. A recording of the presentation is available on the project webpage.
I am wondering if the Farm Women’s Market will continue operating? If so, where would people park to shop?
