Natural Grass in Central Park was replaced with weather-resistant and ecologically sustainable synthetic turf in order to better suit year-round festivities and events. New comfortable seating, charming pergolas, eye-catching lighting systems, and an interactive water deck have also all been added for a memorable experience.

Some other exciting changes include enhanced landscaped pedestrian walkways, contemporary parking, traffic management improvements, and relaxation areas. The restrooms have been completely renovated and water bottle fill stations have been added in order to better serve guests’ needs.

Go RED for Women Luncheon

Celebrating life and wellness resonated through the afternoon at the 2018 Montgomery County Go Red for Women Luncheon. Men and women arrived dressed in their finest red attire exhibiting their dedication to the cause. Chaired by Tiffany MacPherson, the event honored Market Street for its continued commitment to the Montgomery County community. Highlighting the event was the personal survivor story of Carla McDaniel. Her story is one of love, determination, and survival. The need to continue to raise funds for research was a vital part of her message as well as encouraging attendees to live life to the fullest. She and her husband Keaton serve as the perfect examples of both principles.

Heart disease is the #1 killer of women, and funds raised at this event will help further the cause of the American Heart Association’s Go RED for Women initiative.
