Five Rivers MetroPark

Established in 1963 to preserve and protect open space and natural areas in Montgomery County, the publicly-owned Five Rivers MetroPark today encompasses 15,000 acres of forests, grasslands, farmlands and wetlands.  In 1986, MetroParks began a Community Gardening program that helps urban residents develop and maintain community gardens and green projects.  MetroParks also operates 2nd Street Market, a year-round farmers market held in an historic B&O railroad building once slated for demolition, that supports both the growing and buying of locally produced goods.
