October is like a race against the clock to spend as much time outside as possible before the Maryland winter coops you up until spring. Don’t forget about one last trip to Woodley Gardens Park for gorgeous landscapes, nature trails, ball fields, and much more. There’s plenty of room to socially distance among the 37.5 acres of open greenery and special features, whether you just want to take advantage of the shelters for one last picnic, or get a quick run in among the colorful, changing leaves. The tennis courts are also a popular choice at Woodley Gardens Park, and each of the four onsite are lighted making early evening play a bit easier this time of year.
Plus, this natural wonderland is only a short two miles away from The Upton at Rockville and easy to locate just off of I270. Any time you’re passing through town or just have a little bit of time to spare, it’s a great place to get a breath of fresh air. Find Woodley Gardens Park on Nelson Street, with the main entrance right across from Shanghai Taste.
