Explore Cabin John Regional Park

The park is one of Montgomery County's largest and offers a wide range of things to do. The playground is a favorite for kids and includes a replica of an 1863 C.P. Huntington train that is available for a ten-minute, two-mile ride through the park. There is also a full-service ice-skating rink, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, athletic fields, picnic areas, trails and a nature center.

Something for Every Sports Lover

Recreational options include summer ball games on the various athletic fields, tennis on both indoor and lighted outdoor courts, Tai Chi, and even ice skating in the summer at the fully enclosed Cabin John Ice Rink.

Visitors can connect with nature through a variety of environmental nature programs, become entranced by a ride on the model train, or spend the afternoon relaxing with family and friends at various picnic and playground areas. One of the special attractions for children is the Adventure Playground. Don’t miss the totem pole.

If an afternoon isn’t enough, spend the night enjoying the natural beauty of the park at one of seven walk-in campgrounds. And with over five miles of hiking and biking trails, there is plenty of scenery to explore.
