Project Description

This project renovates an existing 17.4 acre park adjacent to Piney Branch Elementary School that is approximately 30 years old and serves a densely populated area of Takoma Park.


A facility planning study was conducted and a plan for the park was approved by the Montgomery County Planning Board on August 4, 2005.  The proposed plan maintains the existing soccer field, replaces existing basketball courts and playground, adds a playground next to the school, converts a tennis court to a skateboard park, provides a loop path, natural surface trails and pedestrian connections, improves an entrance plaza and parking lot at Darwin Avenue, provides handicapped parking and maintenance access at Grant Avenue, constructs a new shelter and enhances wetland areas.  The project will include public art. The project was approved and funded for detailed design and construction by the Montgomery County Council.
