The Lois Y. Green Conservation Park consists of a 200-acre parcel that Lois Y. Green gave to M-NCPPC in 1975 and an additional dedicated stream buffer area of 50 acres. The 250-acre conservation park is located adjacent to the Montgomery County Airpark and is surrounded by residential development.

When Mrs. Lois Green donated the park to M-NCPPC, she specifically directed that the park, “shall be used as an open space, for parkland, and for recreation in such a manner as to evidence the conservation of soil, water, woods, and wildlife… and shall be maintained essentially in its natural condition…” Today the Park is a remarkable oasis in a highly developed area of the County. Even though it lies beneath an airpark flight pattern, the expanse of the park’s grasslands, topography, tree-lined stream, large ponds, wetlands, and woodlands create a feeling of respite and retreat.

Unless noted otherwise on the map, trails marked “Natural Surface” and “Hard Surface” are “Shared by All” trails which include hikers, bikers, and equestrians.
