“A Quite Oasis in the Middle of Derwood, Maryland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

This park is not far from the headwaters of Rock Creek, and is a nice quite oasis in the middle of Derwood, MD. Located between Rockville and Gaithersburg in Rock Creek Park, it is nice place to hike, have a picnic, go fishing, in the summer go paddle boating or canoeing. For picnicing you can rent a pavilion near one of the playgrounds. They also have an archery range. You can download maps of the park that show the hiking trails. This a great place to bring the family for a fun day.

“Take the family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

This was a an easy choice for weekends with the kids. Nice grounds, water views and boats to rent, fields for sports and lots of paths to hike. You can picnics and barbeque here too.
A nice place for a runner and the bike path to Rock Creek park goes by here so people can bike all the way to DC from here if they wish.

“Great place for a walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Lake Needwood features boats for rent, trails to walk or ride, and places for a nice picnic. On summer weekends it can get quite crowded, but on an autumn or winter day, it's a beautiful place for some solitude.
