Silver Spring Intermediate Park sits on more than three and a half acres in Takoma Park, near Montgomery College’s Takoma Park campus.
The park is the former site of the Silver Spring Intermediate School. The park features a playground, basketball, tennis, and pickleball and soccer courts.
The renovation was planned in coordination with former Montgomery County Councilmember Hans Riemer using financial support from the state of Maryland’s Program Open Space. The renovation includes enhanced parking and park access, as well as addressing drainage issues, adding seating and other facilities, and improvements to the courts, as well as landscape. More details on the improvements can be found online on the Silver Spring Intermediate Neighborhood Park Improvement page.
