I love this park. If you have a family please visit because it is one of the few places in Silver Spring that has large open spaces for children to run around in. They also have a lovely light event at Christmas.

A lot of people don't know that there is a merry-go-round and an 1863 C.P. Huntington engine train they can take a ride on. There are trails to walk and birds to see.
