The archery range in South Germantown Recreational Park is surrounded by the golf range, the solar field, the community gardens and maintenance yard. The existing archery range access is from the gravel parking lot in front of the community gardens. It has two (2) foam targets with canopies on the west side of the site, which is not the ideal direction for shooting. The range also has three (3) movable picnic tables.
The goal of the improvements is to provide a safe, fun and accessible amenity that will be well used by the residence.
The proposed improvements include the following items:
Montgomery Parks Staff has met players on site to understand their requirement and receive the suggestions for using the range.
The staff then redesigned the archery range and posted the project at Open Town Hall forum to receive public comments and feedback of the improvements.
In spring 2018, a six foot high berm was built at the northern end of the archery range (between the archery range and the golf range) to protect the players beyond the archery range.
Construction is expected to be completed and the archery range reopens in March 2019.
Links to review meeting notes and presentation materials will be attached to each applicable calendar event as it is scheduled and completed.
