Sligo Mill Overlook Park Playground Plan

About the Sligo Mill Overlook Park Playground Plan Project

The City is developing a playground plan for a section of the Sligo Mill Overlook Park.

The current schedule includes the development of the design in the summer of 2014 and the construction of the playground in the following fiscal year - between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015.

There is the possibility of needing to relocate some of the existing garden plots in order to provide for sufficient room for the playground. If plots are relocated, the schedule will be developed to minimize impact to the gardeners during the growing season.

The land is owned and managed by the Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission (MNCPPC). The City and MNCPPC have agreed to work cooperatively to develop the playground plan. The City has hired Symbiosis, Inc to develop the playground design. The City will oversee the development and construction of the playground design. MNCPPC will oversee relocation of any garden plots.

The playground project manager is Daryl Braithwaite, Public Works Director, who can be reached at 301-891-7615 or

This webpage has been developed as a repository for meeting minutes and design plans developed through the design process. Additional items will be added as they become available.
