Montgomery Parks Open Parkway Program
Montgomery Parks, which is part of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, is extending its “Open Parkways” initiative to allow pedestrians and bicyclists to use parkways on weekends until further notice. On Labor Day weekend, Sept. 4-8, the parkways will be open for recreation and exercise from 9 a.m. on Friday through 7 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 8.
After Labor Day weekend, Little Falls Parkway will be open to pedestrians and cyclists only on weekends starting at 7 a.m. on Saturdays through 6 p.m. on Sunday. Sligo Creek Parkway and Beach Drive will be open to pedestrians and bicyclists from 9 a.m. on Fridays through 6 p.m. on Sundays.
“People are really taking advantage of the open parkways as a great way to exercise and enjoy nature while still being able to stay safe during the COVID-19 crisis,” said Mike Riley, director of Montgomery Parks. “The recent decision by Montgomery County Public Schools to hold school virtually for the first semester reminds us that we are still very much in the midst of the pandemic and need these outdoor opportunities. In response, we plan to continue this initiative until further notice.”
The program includes the following parkway portions:
