Parks To Present 3 Alternatives For Freeland Park

Caroline Freeland Urban Park, via Montgomery ParksMontgomery Parks on Wednesday will present three alternative plans for Caroline Freeland Park.

Parks is planning to renovate the park at 7200 Arlington Rd., on the edge of downtown Bethesda and a neighborhood of single family homes.

The community meeting on Wednesday is set for 7 p.m.- 9 p.m. at the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center (4805 Edgemoor Lane) and will allow the opportunity for public input on each alternative.

Lucas Bonney, the Parks project manager and landscape architect in charge of the renovation process, said in November that changes could include a new alignment for some of the park’s pathways, a new location for the “Bethesda Walk Around” sculpture and a more public gathering space on dead-end Hampden Lane.

The popular playground, part of the park’s renovation in 2010, will likely remain untouched.
