Click for Bethesda, Maryland Forecast

4723 Cheltenham Drive, Bethesda, MD. One block of Wisconsin Ave (Rt 355) in downtown Bethesda, near Chevy Chase Chevyland. (map)

This small urban park has a playground, picnic tables, and a pergola.

The park itself is a corner lot, it is pretty small. The playground is small, with several slides, a spring-mounted boat to bounce on, and a small merry-go-round you can stand on. The play area is mostly shaded. Just one block away is another small park Chase Avenue Park that is really the 'other half' of this park, the play area there has swings and other things that are missing from this park.

There are also 4 picnic tables, each with four seats. They are either under the pergola or under the trees.
