Join the PRA

Membership in the Parkwood Residents Association is open to all residents of the Parkwood neighborhood located in Bethesda and Kensington, Maryland. Annual dues are just $10 per household and are put toward community activities.

PRA funds contribute to the up keep of five gardens in Parkwood and six doggy potty bag dispensers. In past years PRA contributions have paid for the Parkwood entrance signs and a garden bench. Additional contributions to help the Beautification Committee maintain the Parkwood gardens are encouraged and most welcome.
