Project Description

With the help of a bond bill from the Maryland General Assembly, Montgomery County Parks has funding in place to install lights at the dog park within Olney Manor Recreational Park as a pilot program.


  • Olney Manor Recreational Park was selected as the location for this pilot project because much of the park (including baseball fields, tennis courts, parking lots and driveways) is already lit for nighttime use.
  • The lights at the dog park would be on a timer, automatically shutting off at 11 pm.  This is consistent with the rest of the lights throughout the park and Montgomery Parks’ policy for lighted facilities.
  • The light fixtures would match the existing street lights on the adjacent driveway and parking lots.  They are full cut-off fixtures, which direct light down and into the dog park, preventing light trespass onto adjacent properties.
  • Light poles would be placed just outside of the dog park fence, allowing the dog park to remain open during the installation and maintenance of the lighting.

Status/Project Update

Montgomery Parks is seeking public comment on the pilot program.  People may visit Montgomery Parks Open Town Hall Webpage to leave a comment on the pilot program.
