Did you know that even a small park or green space can have important health benefits for people who live and work nearby? According to a National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) publication, the presence of parks and green space has been linked with greater perceived health and lower levels of stress among nearby residents.
That’s not all that parks can do for residents. Parks are important gathering places for people of all ages and can serve as a setting for community events. In addition, parks may promote health and fitness and encourage social interaction. Even a small park can build a community and enhance the quality of life for residents. According to NRPA studies, parks and recreational services are some of the most important factors residents list for assessing community livability.
As a part of its Montgomery Row community, EYA has developed a park that is located centrally within the neighborhood. Situated in the Rock Spring area of Bethesda, the townhomes at Montgomery Row offer a contemporary and modern residential lifestyle. The addition of an open green space provides residents of all ages with an easily accessible and inclusive gathering place. The park features an open grassy space, a play area for children, and a space with seating. The park gives residents the opportunity to slow their pace, and to get to know the people with whom they share their neighborhood. EYA believes that this park will further its vision of a beautiful mixed-use community located in an urban context.
Join us on Saturday, June 10 from 1-3 PM to celebrate Montgomery Row’s new park! Enjoy tasty ice cream courtesy of Nicecream as you tour the community and mingle with neighbors.
