Ellsworth Urban Park

Ellsworth Urban Park is a lovely 3.6-acre park which features a great playground area and tennis courts, just steps away from downtown Silver Spring. There are plenty of picnic tables to sit under the trees and relax.

The Maryland-National Park and Planning Commission acquired this park in the 1970s.

Dog Park

The dog park consists of two separate, fully enclosed and Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant exercise areas: a small dog area (approximately 2,800 square feet) intended for dogs under 20 pounds, and a large dog area (approximately 17,000 square feet) intended for healthy, well-socialized dogs over 20 pounds. Each enclosure includes a drinking fountain, hose bib or quick coupler connection, artificial turf play mound, benches, shared shade structure, trash receptacles, and a variety of surfacing materials.

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

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.

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

The dog park is fully accessible from the sidewalk along Colesville Road, through a secure, double-gated entry system.
