Montgomery Parks Plan Renovations to Columbia Local Park

Montgomery Parks will propose a renovation to Columbia Local Park in Burtonsville to the Montgomery Planning Board on Thursday, July 29.

If approved, a final design is expected to be proposed by 2022 with construction estimated to begin in 2023 at a cost of $2.6 million.

The renovation would replace the current tennis courts with a dog park and convert an abandoned paved area into a tennis court with pickle ball overlays, according to Montgomery Parks.

The renovation would also add four dedicated pickleball courts, a soccer court and a shaded area with a water fountain. It would also provide more parking, paths and repairs to existing structures in the park. 

The Parks invite people to testify in person or by email during the online meeting. Those who wish to email must send their comments to Montgomery County Planning Board Chair Casey Anderson at by 12 p.m. tomorrow, July 28.
