Park Review: Cabin John Regional Park

Cabin John Regional Park
There are many areas of Cabin John Park.  I'm going to focus on the playground and the train.

One of the best things about this park is the train you can ride.  It costs $1.75 per person, kids 2 and younger ride free with a paying adult.  You can also get a coupon book for $15.75 that is 10 tickets for the price of 9.  The ride takes about 10 minutes and goes through some lovely wooded areas.

Another wonderful thing about Cabin John are the shaded playgrounds.  On very hot or sunny days it's nice to have a shaded place you can go play. There are even many shaded picnic tables and indoor bathrooms!  We all know how much we need those bathrooms!

Our Spring Fling Photo Fundraiser will be held here.  So you know that it has to have great scenery! 

Cabin John is close to Montgomery Mall where I find my favorite Bubble Tea store: Tea Neck Court. Don’t let the name fool you, this place has the best bubble.

There are a few downsides to this park.  It is not enclosed & has a sprawling play area with many different sections: so it can be hard to chase more than 1 child.  For some the sprawling is ok, but if you have a runner, escape artist or your kids like to play "you go your way, I'll go my way and we'll see who Mom chases first!" it can be a bit tricky to manage.  To handle that, go with other mom friends (like the ones you find at NMDC) who will help you chase and track your child(ren).
