Parade Start: Cul-de-sac at Moorland Lane and Bethesda Elementary School
Parade End: The Edgemoor Club
Activities: Fire Truck-Bicycle Parade and then Swimming Party!
The Edgemoor Club is partnering with The Edgemoor Citizen's Association to bring you this year’s July 4 Parade and Swim Party! Like last year, the route of our traditional Edgemoor 4th of July Parade will end at the Edgemoor Club. All families participating in the parade are invited to enjoy the pool for the afternoon, whether or not you belong to The Edgemoor Club .
The traditional popsicles, breakfast pastries, and coffee will be served in the clubhouse following the parade, and the pool snack bar will be open for business until the pool closes at 5pm. (Non-club members should plan on bringing cash for the snack bar.)
The parade route has changed in order to accommodate our new ending place. Kids/families who are participating in the parade should bring their decorated bike or wagon and meet at the cul-de-sac at Moorland Lane and Bethesda Elementary School a little before 10 AM to pick up some favors for the parade - flags, hats, fans and more! The fire truck will meet the parade at this spot and the parade will begin shortly thereafter. The parade will follow the truck through the neighborhood until it arrives at the Edgemoor Club, 7415 Exeter Road.
Edgemoor's 4th of July celebration also provides a great opportunity to enjoy the pool and hang out with the neighbors. We hope to see you on the 4th!
The Edgemoor Citizens Association (ECA) is the volunteer organization composed of the residents of the Edgemoor neighbohood in Bethesda, along with Bradley Village and parts of Bradley Hills. The elected officers of ECA and its members work on a wide variety of activities designed to improve our neighborhood's safety, help guide its development, provide liaison to county and other governmental units and ensure a friendly and welcoming environment for all who live in and visit Edgemoor.
Caroline Freeland Park Renovation Update
The first draft of the redesign planning by Montgomery Parks for Caroline Freeland Park was presented at the public meeting on Jan. 20th. The updated park will have a larger fenced in play area, a curved path through the park, new benches and lighting and a green lawn area. Although the timing for renovation is still a way off, it was really exciting to hear about it. There will be more opportunity for public input prior to its approval and scheduling, so take a look at the plans so far at: http://www.montgomeryparks.org/pdd/cip/caroline_freeland_park.shtm
