The archery range in Rock Creek Regional Park is located on the east side of the Beach Drive, near Picnic Area #3. The existing archery range has four (4) targets with canopies, three (3) shooting stations, a couple of movable picnic tables and fixed benches. There is no paved access to the archery range. Visitors park the car at the Picnic Area #3 parking lot, walk across Beach Drive, and then walk down a grassy slope to get to the archery range.
The goal of the improvements is to provide a safe, fun and accessible amenity that will be well used by the park visitors.
The proposed improvements include the following items:
Montgomery Parks staff has posted the project at Open Town Hall forum to receive public comments and feedback on the improvements. Staff also met players and DC Archery to understand their requirement and receive the suggestions for the improvements.
The archery will be under construction in the late summer/early fall of 2018. And expected to be reopened to the public in spring 2019.
Links to review meeting notes and presentation materials will be attached to each applicable calendar event as it is scheduled and completed.
