Greenbriar Local Park is a beautiful 25-acre park, new in 2016, that offers an excellent blend of green space and recreational opportunities and equipment. Interpretive signage and custom playgrounds highlight the park’s theme, “The Journey of Raindrop.” Visitors can learn about watersheds, Maryland geography, and wildlife of the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay areas while they’re playing, relaxing or getting some exercise. In addition to a great new soccer field, volleyball and basketball court, playgrounds and picnic areas, more than 16.5 acres of the 25-acre park are undisturbed, including more than 15 acres of forest.
The Travilah area was identified in the 1998 Park Recreation and Open Space Plan (PROS) as having some of the highest unmet recreational needs in Montgomery County. But area residents wanted the park to keep the rural feel of the neighborhood, too. The M-NCPPC acquired the park land in 1992.
Picnic shelter reservations are first-come, first-served and are available to rent from April 1 to October 31.
