Bethesda Trolley Trail, basketball & tennis courts to temporarily close inside Battery Lane Park

Another trail disruption in downtown Bethesda will send pedestrians and cyclists out of their way for most of the next year. This time, it's the Bethesda Trolley Trail. The section of the trail inside Battery Lane Park will be closed potentially until next summer, because it will be used as a staging area for park renovations. Montgomery Parks says the closure is also necessary for safety reasons. The existing basketball and tennis courts in the park will be closed for the same reasons during the renovations.

A detour to reach the next segment on either side of the closure has been designated (see above map). Renovations to the popular park will include will include a new playground area, trail widening, fitness equipment, site furnishings, and shade tree plantings. Watch for wayfinding signage when work is underway.

Will the entire park be closed or just the courts and the highlighted path? There's the other walking path through the park as well that is not highlighted.
