Description

This project provides a new park at 19840 Century Boulevard in the Germantown Town Center. The park will be situated at the northern end of an 8.80 acre parcel of land owned by Montgomery County and shared with the new Germantown Regional Library. The site is challenging to develop due to the presence of existing wetlands, existing stormwater management facilities, and steep slopes. The approved facility plan for this new park creates large open space areas by placing a large residential stormwater management facility east of the site underground. In the central area of the site there is an existing wetland that also serves stormwater management functions. Features of this park include interpretive trails and boardwalks, lighting along main pathways, artwork, overlook terraces with retaining walls and stair connections to the park and the library, trellises for community gathering and events, landscaping, and enhanced wetland plantings. The Germantown Town Center has been fully built through significant public and private development investment, according to recommendations in the master plan, with the exception of this remaining undeveloped parcel of land.
