Fountain activated, summer concerts scheduled at Veterans Park in Bethesda (Photos)
Most importantly, it enhances the central purpose of the park - the memorial that commemorates residents of Bethesda and Chevy Chase who died in the wars of the 20th and 21st century. Stop by for a visit, at the corner of Norfolk and Woodmont Avenues. There is a Starbucks right across the street, a 7-Eleven nearby on Fairmont Avenue, and several restaurants steps away from the park - Jetties, BGR, The Parva, Bold Bite, Tastee Diner, Woodmont Grill and Black's Bar & Kitchen, to name a few. A Capital Bikeshare station is located at the Norfolk Avenue side of the park.
But on Thursday evenings in May, June and July, the park is also home to Bethesda Urban Partnership's diverse Summer Concert Series. Here is the lineup for this summer. Concerts are held between 6:00 and 8:00 PM.
