Dewey Local Park was renovated in 2020. The park includes a multi-age-themed playground with a perimeter “Trike Track,” a picnic shelter, a 22,000-square-foot lighted dog park, a 2,400-square-foot outdoor fitness station, a street hockey/futsal facility developed in partnership with the Washington Capitals, and a soccer field.

The work done in 2020 also includes renovating approximately 1,400 linear feet of the Rock Creek Trail, public art murals, additional parking, stormwater management, and landscape planting grown at the Montgomery Parks’ Pope Farm Nursery. M-NCPPC acquired the 14.5-acre park in 1951.
