Montgomery reimagining a parking lot into a picnic area in downtown Wheaton as part of global PARK(ing) Day.
Park(ing) day is an annual, global event that gives residents, businesses and organizations an opportunity to temporarily transform metered parking spaces and stimulate conversations about how people can use their urban landscape. Counties have an opportunity to explore new avenues of public space use and provide greater access to green spaces along with safe ways to use streets and parking areas.
Montgomery Parks is joining in this global event by transforming Parking Lot 13, 11219 Grandview Avenue (behind Parks & Planning building) into a picnic area for local residents. The event will include free Italian ice, lawn games, DJ, LED lightbulb exchange and more! The event is in partnership with the Wheaton Urban District, Montgomery Parks, Department of Environmental Protection, Department of Recreation, One Montgomery Green and Montgomery Energy Connection.
