Battery Lane Park
4960 Battery Lane, Bethesda, MD. Halfway between Old Georgetown Rd and Wisconsin Ave. Also accessible from Glenbrook Rd. (map)
This small neighborhood park has a playground, a tennis court, and a basketball court.
The mulch-cushioned playground is small but servicable. It has several kinds of slides, something to bounce on, a couple of steering wheels not on anything in particular (one of them is currently missing), a baby swing and a child swing. Suprisingly, there are no full-size swings. There are trees all around it so it is shaded full time.
There is a single tennis court and a basketball court. There are also two picnic tables and a number of benches. The North Bethesda Trail runs along one edge of the park (it is also called the Bethesda Trolley Trail).
There isn't any nearby parking, it is best to use this park if you are within walking distance. Battery lane is the northern end of downtown Bethesda.
