On Saturday, December 10 at 12:30 p.m., Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett will participate in a groundbreaking ceremony to begin construction of the Good Hope Neighborhood Recreation Center The facility is located at 14715 Good Hope Road in Silver Spring.
The new 14,000 square foot building will be more than twice the size of the original structure, vastly increasing capacity and making it more useful to the community. The new building will be located at the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission’s Good Hope Park on the site of the existing parking lot. The new parking lot will be built on the site of the old building after it is demolished. The new lot will be closer to the tennis courts and ballfields.
The building is being replaced because key building systems such as the structural system, exterior walls, elevators, roof and HVAC and electrical system have surpassed their useful service life and it does not meet Americans with Disabilities Act standards.
