Measuring in at one acre, Caroline Freeland Urban Park has been a part of the Bethesda community since 1983. There's plenty to love about this shared community space. Pint-sized visitors enjoy zipping and zooming about the fenced-in playground, which tends to attract a crowd on sunny days (it underwent renovations in 2010). Those seeking a little rest and relaxation should head straight for the grassy lawn. There, you can spread out a picnic and let the kids fuel up for another go-round on the playground after lunch.
You can also enjoy some shade under one of the park's trees or check out the public art sculpture and the stone steps along Elm Street.
