This neighborhood park has a playground, tennis courts, and a basketball court. It shares a parking lot with the Leland Community Recreation Center and the Town of Chevy Chase government offices.

There are two tennis courts (no tennis practice wall though) as well as a basketball court. There are plenty of benches, but only a single picnic table.
