Roads & Parkways

Montgomery Parks owns and maintains roads and parkways which connect users to several of our larger trails systems and parks. Sligo Creek Parkway connects to Sligo Creek Trail, Little Falls Parkway connects to the Capital Crescent Trail, and Beach Drive is located inside Rock Creek Park and connects users to Rock Creek Trail.

Montgomery Parks launched the Open Parkways Program in March 2020 to provide more outdoor space for recreation and exercise in response to COVID-19. These car-free streets are exclusively for pedestrians and bikers, no motorized vehicles are allowed. Due to the overwhelming popularity of the initiative, the program remains.
