Western Grove Park (formerly Chevy Chase Open Space)

Western Grove Park Development

Chevy Chase Open Space Facility Plan

Over the past year, the Village's Chevy Chase Open Space Committee has been working the Park& Planning staff to develop a concept plan for the park. Now that the concept plan has been drafted community feedback is sought on the plan and to develop a list of features the community feels are priorities for implementation.

Over the past couple months Maryland-National Capital Park & Planning Commission Crews and Contractors have been working to clean up the Chevy Chase Open Space property (formally known as the Wohlfarth property) to remove non-native invasive shrubs, vines and small trees and to improve site lines into and out of the park.

The property looks much better now, and, as a result, many more people are using it—with positive and negative consequences. In order to counter any negative uses, the Village is modifying its patrolling and monitoring of the property. We are asking Village residents to help us by contacting the Village Communications Center to report any suspicious behavior that you observe, as well as any other negative uses of the property.

Thank you for your support as we work toward making this property a valued asset for all Village residents to enjoy.

The first Chevy Chase Open Space Visioning Meeting for the park located on the west side of the Village will be held on June 15, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. in the Village Hall. This is an opportunity for residents to get involved in the design of the park.

Additionally, the Village is in the process establishing a small committee of citizens to serve as a liaison between the Village and the Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission

(M-NCPPC) as we work through this Concept Plan process and beyond. Other municipalities have established such committees when partnering with M-NCPPC on parks in their jurisdictions and they have been very helpful in streamlining the collaboration process. Included in this 5-person Committee will be Village staff liaison Michael Younes. If you are interested in serving on this Committee, please contact Mr. Younes a michael.younes@montgomerycountymd.gov or (301) 654-7300.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Brenda Sandberg, Legacy Open Space Program Manager, Montgomery Parks, at brenda.sandberg@montgomeryparks.org or 301-650-4360.
