by Kelli Holsendolph on June 12th, 2007

SILVER SPRING, MD—The Montgomery County Department of Parks is presenting a concept plan for the new Llewellyn Fields Sports Complex—on Norbeck Road, east of the intersection with Layhill Road—and answering questions about the project during a public meeting tomorrow, Wednesday, June 13 at 7:00 pm.

The Llewellyn Fields Sports Complex is a community stewardship project for the Intercounty Connector (ICC), which includes new ballfields and amenities to address the replacement of the existing ballfields projected to be lost during the construction of the ICC. The proposed plan for the new Llewellyn Fields Sports Complex includes 5 lighted and irrigated ballfields: one full sized baseball field, three soccer fields and one footfall field. Other plans include one large playground, approximately two miles of looped perimeter hiker-biker trails, one picnic shelter, picnic areas with an open play area, one restroom facility, reforestation areas and an interpretive area/kiosk for the adjacent Rachel Carson Greenway trail.

This is a joint development project between the Department of Parks and the Maryland State Highway Administration.
