Get out and for for a walk! Montgomery Parks is continuing its efforts to expand safe access to park facilities for recreation and exercise during the COVID-19 crisis. The department recently extended its regular Sunday closures of Sligo Creek Parkway to motorists to Fridays and Saturdays to free up more outdoor park space for walking, running and biking. Due to the overwhelming popularity of the Friday and Saturday vehicle closures, the Parks Department has decided to open an additional section of the parkway to people, between Forest Glen Road and University Boulevard, on weekends. These sections of Sligo Creek Parkway will be closed to vehicles and open to pedestrians, bicyclists, and other park users beginning Friday mornings at 9 a.m. through Sunday evenings at 6 p.m.
