The Dog Park at King Park serves the residents of Rockville and is a large dog park that is split into an area for small dogs and an area for large dogs. The park also includes a special fenced in area in order to enter the park, unleash your dog, and safely let them into the park without them escaping. There is also a large shade shelter in each of the areas that is perfect on a hot day when you or your dog need to escape the sun for a little bit on a hot summer day. Each area of the park also has benches and drinking fountains for humans and dogs. Right now there are 10 complexes that allow cats, small dogs, and large dogs and many more that just allow cats and small dogs.

Rockville is served by both the Washington Metro and the MARC commuter rail system. The Washington Metro’s Red Line has two stops in Rockville and gives residents access to DC and all of the surrounding areas via the Red Line and by access to the other Metro Lines. The ride from Rockville to the Metro Central Stop takes about 30 minutes and drops you in the center of Downtown DC. The MARC commuter rail uses the Brunswick line and stops in DC, giving residents direct access to the city. Either way, residents have easy access to the surrounding areas whether they are going to work or just looking to enjoy a day in the city.

The eastern edge of Potomac is bordered by I-270 and the Capital Beltway, giving residents easy access to the nearby cities and causing heavy traffic on that side of the city. Luckily, traffic in other parts of Potomac is not that bad because no major highways bisect the city or cross the Potomac River. Many residents work in Washington DC which is a short 30 minute commute when the traffic is light, but can take up to an hour during rush hour traffic. Many commuters check the traffic report before going to and leaving work so that they can plan their route accordingly. Residents also work in Mclean and Bethesda, but these two cities are closer to Potomac than DC.
