Visitors can connect with nature through a variety of environmental nature programs, become entranced by a ride on the miniature train, or spend the afternoon relaxing with family and friends at various picnic and playground areas. t

One of the special attractions for children is the Adventure Playground.

Sports lovers can enjoy summer ball games on the various athletic fields, tennis on both indoor and lighted outdoor courts, Tai Chi, and even ice skating in the summer at the fully enclosed Cabin John Ice Rink.

If an afternoon isn’t enough, spend the night enjoying the natural beauty of the park at one of seven walk-in campgrounds. And with over five miles of hiking and biking trails, there is plenty of scenery to explore.

Best Dog Park

The Cabin John Regional Dog Park offers dogs, both little and small, a great place to run around and play. There are separate areas for small dogs (20 lbs or less) and large dogs (21 lbs or more) as well as drinking fountains, climbing structures, dog waste bags, and plenty of space to sit as your pup plays.

Please remember that all dogs should be on a leash before entering and exiting the park. All dogs must be current on all vaccinations as required by state or local law. There is no fee to use Montgomery Parks’ Dog Parks and dog permits are not required.

Unless otherwise posted, the facility is open for use from sunrise to sunset.

Dog park visitors should read and follow Montgomery Parks’ Dog Park Rules and Regulations.
