Civic Center Park

  1. PARK NOTICE
    Rockville parks are currently open for public use, but bathrooms remain closed.

    The order still prohibits gatherings of more than 50 people, in an effort to reduce public contact and slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, and applies to athletic, social, cultural and community gatherings.

    Although parks are open for public use, we are not issuing any park rental permits at this time.

The largest of our parks, the Civic Center Park is centrally located and surrounded by some of Rockville’s best places - Glenview Mansion, Croydon Creek, F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre, formal gardens and a forest preserve.

For more information, contact 240-314-8660.
