New dog park opens in Montgomery County

montdogparkAdd one more to the growing list of dog parks in Maryland —  Cabin John Dog Park in Bethesda.

Located in Cabin John Regional Park, at 10900 Westlake Dr., the dog park is free and open from sunrise to sunset.

A grand opening celebration is slated for Oct. 31, but the park is already accepting dogs. It will be closed from 9 to 11 a.m. Tuesdays for maintenance.

“I’ve been receiving phone calls and inquiries about this for quite some time,” C.J. Lilly, a landscape architect and project manager for Park and Planning’s park development division told the Washington Post. “Even when I go out to the site, people walking their dogs are very curious and anxious to know when the dog park is going to open, so there was a certain clamor and excitement building up around this.”

The $158,000 park is slightly more than an acre and features separate fenced areas for large and small dogs, as well as a rock climbing structure.

It joins three other Montgomery County dog parks —  Black Hill Regional Park in Boyds, Ridge Road Recreational Park in Germantown and Wheaton Regional Park in Wheaton.

A fifth dog park, slated for Olney Manor Regional Park in Olney, is under construction, and the county is evaluating other sites as well.
