Montgomery Parks is developing a project to install lights in the Dog Park at Olney Manor Recreational Park. We are asking the public to comment on the project. We want to hear what you think!
With the help of a bond bill from the Maryland General Assembly, Montgomery County Parks has funding in place to install lights at the dog park within Olney Manor Recreational Park.
- Olney Manor Recreational Park was selected as the location for this project because much of the park (including baseball fields, tennis courts, parking lots and driveways) is already lit for nighttime use.
- The light fixtures would match the existing street lights on the adjacent driveway and parking lots. They are full cut-off fixtures, which direct light down and into the dog park, preventing light trespass onto adjacent properties.
- The lights at the dog park would be on a timer, automatically shutting off at 11 pm. This is consistent with the rest of the lights throughout the park and Montgomery Parks’ policy for lighted facilities.
- Light poles would be placed just outside of the dog park fence, allowing the dog park to remain open during the installation and maintenance of the lighting.
Montgomery Parks is seeking public comment on the pilot program. People may leave a comment on the pilot program below.
