Parks’ Picks

June is Pride Month. It’s the time to celebrate the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA+) community, show support, and learn more about being an ally.

The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) just released its statement about diversity, equity, and inclusivity in the workplace: 

“….Diversity combined with a commitment to equity and inclusion communicates our organizational values, enriches the lives of our employees, and bolsters innovative thinking essential to success…..

To commemorate Pride Month, Montgomery Parks partnered with MoCo Pride Center to invite Montgomery County residents to the Summer of Love Pride Walk on Sunday, June 27, 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm, at Martin Luther King, Jr. Recreational Park.

The event includes an almost one-mile loop on a paved, pride-themed trail. Along the way, take pics at the butterfly field, chalk art, and other areas. Then,  join the fun in the picnic area. Spread out a blanket, dance to music with DJ Confetti the First, play lawn games, and grab a bite from onsite food trucks, or enjoy your own picnic dinner. 

Free event, but registration is required.  

Montgomery Parks…it’s all here!
