Flooding in Rock Creek Regional Park, Hikers Urged to Use Caution (PHOTOS)

Montgomery Parks officials are warning hikers at Rock Creek Regional Park to use caution because some trails and pedestrian bridges are still flooded following last week’s heavy rains.

The banks of Lake Needwood were overflowing with water on Monday afternoon and a couple of park visitors told MyMCMedia they had never seen the lake water so high.

Parks officials said the parking lot at Needwood Boats remained closed because of high water at the boat rental building. Officials said there was water in the first floor of the building and the area around the building remain flooded.

High water was also reported at nearby Lake Frank.

All of the roads are open inside Rock Creek Regional Park with the exception of the parking lot at Needwood Boats, according to Parks spokesperson Melissa Chotiner.

According to Parks officials, Lake Needwood Boats is closed indefinitely.
