Parks and Trails

We are constantly making additions and enhancements to the park system to provide recreation opportunities, protect environmental resources, preserve key cultural resources, and promote an interconnected countywide trail system.

Park and Trail Plans in Progress

  • 2017 Park Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Plan
    Parks and open spaces are essential to the high quality of life for Montgomery County residents.  In an era of increasing competition for limited land and resources for a growing population, this plan will provide priorities for park acquisition, renovation, development and preservation.
  • Energized Public Spaces Functional Master Plan
    This plan will allow park planners to quickly adapt to changing park needs in some areas of the county. The goal is to create outdoor spaces where people of all ages and incomes can meet, play, relax, exercise, enjoy nature and more in a range of parks and open spaces in the highest populated areas of the County.
  • Upper Paint Branch Limited Area Trail Plan
