Roads & Parkways

Montgomery Parks owns and maintains roads and parkways which connect users to several of our larger trail 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.

In March 2020, we launched the Open Parkways Program 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.

Portions of Sligo Creek Parkway and Beach Drive are open to pedestrians and cyclists from Fridays at 9 a.m. through Sundays at 6 p.m.

Open Parkways Fall/Winter Schedule:
