Brookside Gardens in Montgomery County is a lovely place to spend a spring day. With both paved and unpaved walking trails, it offers something for everyone.

Montgomery County is running a parking lot pedestrian safety campaign. I recently received a campaign flyer in the mail. I’ve also seen Heads Up in Parking Lots signage at a county-owned lot in Wheaton. Both are good ideas, and will hopefully play a hand in reducing pedestrian collisions. However, achieving complete pedestrian safety in parking lots will require overhauling how they are designed.

At the Twinbrook metro station Kiss & Ride (passenger drop off) lot,  I came across a sidewalk that tilts to one side. I was the only one trying to use it; those walking in front of me opted to use the parking lot instead. I wonder if this sidewalk is ADA compliant. 

Montgomery County’s Rock Creek Trail is a 14 mile paved path for pedestrians and cyclists that meanders through Rock Creek Regional Park. Going north, it ends at Lake Needwood, and to the south it connects with Rock Creek Park (operated by the National Park Service within the District of Columbia).
