Park Potomac

The grassy area in Park Potomac used to be a nice spot for local residents to walk their dogs. Now the 1.42-acre green space has been transformed into an outdoor destination, complete with a putting green, pingpong tables, bocce ball courts, cornhole, cabana-like picnic tables, Adirondack chairs, and, on occasion, an oversize checkers set. There’s also a small raised deck that doubles as a lounging area and stage for events—in October, Park Potomac hosted “Ladies Night in the Park,” which featured a DJ, two bars, a pop-up podcast and free appetizers. The entire green space, which includes a metal shipping container that’s been turned into a bar, can be rented for private parties. Nearby, people can hang out at a seating area with a firepit while waiting for a table at Addie’s, Gringos & Mariachis and other Park Potomac restaurants. A fenced-in dog run is in the works.
