WHEATON, Md. — Montgomery Parks will hold a community meeting on Tuesday, June 6, 2023, from 7‒9 p.m. at the National Capital Trolley Museum to share information about a proposed disc golf course at Northwest Branch Recreational Park. Parks staff will provide details about the project including how disc golf will activate this largely undeveloped park and complement the National Capital Trolley Museum.
Disc golf is similar to traditional golf, but instead of clubs and balls, players throw discs into baskets located at each hole.
