Park is one of the largest parks owned by the City of Rockville and spans 33.3 acres. The Park hosts many different youth and adults sports programs year-round and with all of the amenities that can be found here, it has been a fixture in the community for many years.

June 29, the City of Rockville opened its first dedicated futsal courts at Welsh Park, on the site of the old Rockville Skate Park. Futsal is a game similar to soccer but is played on a hard court and in a smaller space than a regular soccer pitch. Futsal emphasizes ball con trol, passing in small spaces and keeping the ball on the ground to keep play moving. These courts represent the first dedicated soccer facility within the City of Rockville.
