Input Sought for Proposed New Park in Downtown Silver Spring
Residents are invited by Montgomery Parks to provide input for the first phase of a new, one-acre park in Downtown Silver Spring. South Silver Spring Park, which will be 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 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 that will connect neighborhoods and destinations.
To provide input on the park’s proposed amenities, go to https://www.opentownhall.com/portals/260/Issue_12107.
