Advocate

Support crucial funding for
Montgomery Parks.


The crux of fulfilling Montgomery Parks’ mission is balancing environmental stewardship with recreation. The right balance is what will keep our world-class park system in top shape for current and future generations.

What’s at Stake?

Each year, Montgomery Parks needs additional resources to operate. If we do not receive additional resources each year to care for our growing parks system, programs suffer, facilities deteriorate, and we lose the capacity to provide activities and resources for community residents.

A successful budget outcome is never guaranteed. We rely on a committed contingent of park enthusiasts to successfully advocate on our behalf.

What You Can Do

We are always looking for new voices to advocate on behalf of parks. We want the Montgomery County Council to hear from park advocates and advocacy groups on an ongoing basis in support of the parks budget.

Thank you for the continued support! Email parksfoundation@montgomeryparks.org to learn more.

Budget Update

All development, improvement, and maintenance is governed by the Capital Improvements Program (CIP). The CIP is prepared every two years to cover a six-year cycle. The CIP includes new or renovation projects costing over $30,000 with a useful life greater than 15 years. It also includes smaller planned life cycle asset replacement (PLAR) projects that increase the life of assets.

The most recent CIP was approved by the Montgomery County Council on May 21, 2020. The County’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB) maintains information about prior CIPs on their website.
