8400 Old Georgetown Rd, Bethesda, MD. Next to Bethesda United Methodist Church. You can also access it from Northfield Rd.

This large neighborhood park has a playground, a picnic area, tennis courts, and a basketball court.

The playground is pretty decent, with swings, three slides, a nice piece of climbing equipment with stairs and poles, a tunnel, and more. It is mostly in the sun and is cushioned with mulch.

The park also has a small pavilion with benches along the inside. The tennis courts and basketball court are open for everyone. There is also a pretty large semi-shaded grassy area and picnic tables under the trees. The parking lot is small, with only enough space for 4 or 5 cars.
