Hillmead Neighborhood Park

Click for Bethesda, Maryland Forecast

8609 Ridge Rd, Bethesda, MD. In the Hillmead neighborhood, near Bradley Blvd. (map)

This neighborhood park has a playground, tennis courts, and basketball courts.

The bulk of this park is taken up by the two basketball courts and two tennis courts. It doesn't leave that much space for the playground, which is partly dug out of the hillside.

There are benches and picnic tables scattered around the park. The basketball courts and tennis courts are in the sun. The rest of the park has trees, so there isn't a whole lot of grass.

The mulch cushioned playground is totally shaded. It has a climbing structure with two slides and a tunnel, as well as a play bulldozer with a small slide. There is also a teeter totter.
