Carroll Knolls Park Coming to Georgia Avenue

The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission acquired the land that was formerly home to the Maryland College of Art and Design.

Carroll Knolls Park Coming to Georgia Avenue

A new park is coming to the stretch of Georgia Avenue between Wheaton and Forest Glen.

The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission announced Thursday that it had acquired a 2.47 acre plot of land on the west side of Georgia Avenue to create the new Carroll Knolls Local Park.

The site was previously owned by the Montgomery College Foundation, Inc., and formerly home to the Maryland College of Art and Design (MCAD).

The land was acquired through the department’s Legacy Open Space Program for $1,140,000. An additional 1.2 acres will be incorporated into the park with the anticipated donation of an adjacent lot and the incorporation of several undeveloped road rights-of-way, resulting in a new local park almost four acres in size.

The Montgomery Planning Board approved the acquisition in September.
