A Pump Track has appeared at Fairview Road Urban Park in Downtown Silver Spring, as part of Montgomery Parks’ Pop-Up Programming.

As part of an effort to attract more visitors to its parks, Montgomery Parks is offering free programming at select parks.

Several activities are being offered at select locations around Montgomery County:

  • Make and Take: Create something special to take home right in your neighborhood park.
  • Pop-Up Recess: Join a Montgomery Park Play Specialist in a park near you to play with giant board games, balls, jump ropes and more fun things to play within the park. Pop Up Recess is fun for the whole family.
  • Touch a Truck: Whether they are climbing into the cab of a backhoe, riding in a bucket truck or turning a police cruiser lights on children of all ages can explore and learn about the trucks that help upkeep Montgomery County’s urban parks.
  • Pump Track: The mobile speed ring pump track is great for learning how to ride on a pump track or for fine-tuning your skills. Montgomery Parks pump track will be located at a park for a month. Visit the pump track from sunrise to sunset. If you don’t have a bike or helmet no worries check the schedule to see when and where the Play Specialist will be with bikes and helmets.
  • Rock Wall: Have you ever wanted to go rock climbing but just haven’t worked up the nerve? Why not give Montgomery Parks mobile climbing wall a try first? The climbing wall is twenty- six feet tall and you can try your hand at rock climbing skills in a local park.
  • Tree Climbing: Come climb a giant tree in Montgomery Parks! Join our arborists as they provide safety gear, assistance, and encouragement to help kids put their heads in the clouds and see our parks from a new perspective. Tons of fun and free for all! Let’s see how high you can climb!
  • Cozy Community Day: What better way to spend your time than in a local park around a cozy fire with friends, neighbors, and a surprise snack.
  • Movie Night: Bring your chairs, blankets, picnic baskets and sit back and relax while you enjoy a movie under the stars with your family, friends, and neighbors.

The Pump Track is available at Fairview Road Urban Park, located at 8900 Fairview Road in Downtown Silver Spring.
