Montgomery County Dog Park Survey

Montgomery County Parks is conducting a Dog Park Site Suitability Study that will be used to help guide future park design decisions.  The study considers some 50 parks in the County, and includes a resident survey asking people which locations they would prefer for a future dog park site.  The study includes two parks near to the Town -- Elm Street Park and Norwood Park.  If you would like to express an opinion pro or con about the idea of locating a dog park in those locations or other locations in the County, you can do so through this link.  Make sure to scroll down to topic 345 Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Area to vote on parks near the Town.
