Bethesda Market Parks Community Meeting, 6:30 p.m.

Wednesday, March 15, 2023

On March 15 at 6:30 p.m. in the Lawton Community Recreation Center, the County Parks Department will host a community meeting to review and discuss ideas for features and amenities in the new parks to be created adjacent to the Farm Women's Market. One new park will occupy most of the parking lot behind the market; the other will be built on the parking lot between Leland and Walsh streets. This is an exciting step in the process to turn our vision into reality.

The March 15 meeting will feature a brief presentation of a concept plan, currently under development, followed by an interactive session for attendees to learn more about the project and provide their ideas and feedback. Different stations will be set up for attendees to engage on specific topics. A second community meeting will be held at Bethesda Elementary School on March 16 at 7 p.m. Following these meetings, the Parks Department will conduct an online survey, open for 30 days, for Bethesda and Chevy Chase residents to post their comments. We encourage residents to attend these meetings and to participate in the online survey.  

We would also welcome hearing from you in advance of these meetings, so that the Council can gain an initial understanding of what amenities our residents would like to see provided in these parks. You can share your ideas with the Town Council at  

This is the opportunity for Town residents to review and influence the amenities in these new parks and to demonstrate our interest in creating urban parkland that will truly serve the neighboring communities. More information on this project and the community meetings is available here.
