Capital Crescent Trail rest area in Bethesda, MD now open
For the past few months they have been totally re-doing the rest area on the Capital Crescent Trail near Bethesda Avenue in Bethesda, MD. It took longer than expected but it is now open and it looks really nice. The area has granite pavers, 5 benches and a raised circular area for landscape plantings. The map case and water fountain (including the dog water fountain) are still there but are in new spots.
The rest area is dedicated to Linda Weiner who died of leukemia in 2004. Most of the cost was covered by private donations. The dedication ceremony was Saturday, June 6th (it would have been Linda's 51st birthday). I'm not sure where the post notices about ceremonies such as these but I didn't hear about it until I read it in the gazette.
