The small district houses Woodside Urban Park. It is an expansive recreational facility (2.3 acres) located at the neighborhood’s southern edge. The park was restored and expanded in 2010. It now features picnic tables, huge play area, tennis courts, bronze statue of a man on a unicycle, and water fountain at the bustling Georgia Avenue. Woodside United Methodist Church, part of the Silver Spring Cooperative Parish, and the Montgomery County Health and Human Services building are also situated in Woodside.

Silver Spring is a fashionable urban hub in Montgomery County, Maryland north of Washington DC. The city center has gone through a major facelift with the opening of more retail shops, fine-dining restaurants and entertainment facilities.

Woodside United Methodist Church was the former Sligo Village Methodist Church that was constructed on a parcel of property donated in 1872 by the new subdivision of Woodside. The close location of Washington Woodside to Forest Glen Railway forced the congregation to relocate the building. In 1897, the church was placed on rollers and pulled by horses to its present site on the opposite Section of Georgia Avenue. Woodside Park was developed in 1922 when Alton Farm (owned by Crosby Noyes, the late publisher of Washington Evening Star) was sold.

Woodside Park was acknowledged by the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission historic planning staff as the best preserved early 20th Century neighborhood in Montgomery County. The neighborhood also hosted various architectural and historical bus tours. The recreational venue’s streets were constructed in a way to fashion a park-like setting for the residents. The Park subscribes contours of the land and curve to conform to natural crests and valleys. Nearly all the streets are extraordinarily wide while houses are positioned behind the right of way two times more than what is mandated by zoning policies. This produces a spacious appearance in many urban hubs. For your transportation requirements, call Affinity Airport Sedan immediately.
