August 29, 2016 By Melissa Chotiner Silver Spring, MD – Montgomery Parks, part of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission is aiming to attract more people to the parks – particularly its urban parks in the densely populated parts of Montgomery County. The department is bringing a series of fun, free “Pop Up” programming to select parks this fall, including Bollywood dancing, seated massage and Tai Chi. The Pop Up in Montgomery Parks campaign is part of an ongoing “activate urban parks” initiative that was launched last year, when Casey Anderson became the chair of the Montgomery Planning Board Chair. The initiative is intended to help people discover or rediscover their local parks, and is one of Anderson’s top priorities. “It is important that we not only plan and design great urban parks, but also have exciting, active urban parks that residents can enjoy,” said Chairman Anderson. “We want to get more people interested to see what they can do in the parks that are right near them – where they live or where they work,” said Mitra Pedoeem, Deputy Director for Montgomery Parks. Following is a list of upcoming programs taking place during September and October, as part of the Pop Up in Montgomery Parks initiative.
