Blockhouse Point Conservation Park is 630 acres of rich upland forest along the Potomac River. This park is designated by Montgomery Parks as a “best natural area” because of the rare and threatened species it supports, the diversity of plant and animal life in the undisturbed forest, and the schist bluffs that tower over the Chesapeake and Ohio (C&O) Canal.
