Montgomery Parks Seeks Public Input for New South Silver Spring Park in Downtown Silver Spring

by MCS Staff

Montgomery Parks(opens in a new tab) invites the public to provide input for the first phase of a new, one-acre park in downtown Silver Spring. South Silver Spring Park(opens in a new tab), located at 1110 East-West Highway (the former site of National Tire and Battery) will provide multiple spaces for active recreation, play, and socializing. The park’s first phase is expected to open in 2023.

Montgomery Parks purchased the site of the park at the end of 2021 with the goal of demolishing the existing building and developing the first phase of the park. To provide input on the park’s proposed amenities, please go to the Open Town Hall survey(opens in a new tab).

About the new South Silver Spring Park: In addition to providing spaces for fun and recreation, the park will connect nearby public spaces in downtown Silver Spring districts by linking East-West Highway and Kennett Street. The park will connect to the Green Loop, a pedestrian and bicyclist-friendly path proposed in the Silver Spring Downtown and Adjacent Communities Plan(opens in a new tab) that will connect neighborhoods and destinations.
