Construction Planned for Parking Lot at Rockville’s Glenview Mansion

The city of Rockville is planning a project to make the parking lot at Glenview Mansion more accessible to people with disabilities.

Portions of the mansion could close during construction, but the project is still in design and the timeline hasn’t yet been determined, city spokeswoman Marylou Berg said. City budget documents estimate it will cost about $1.1 million to install a new guardrail at the mansion entrance and build parking that complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The project is slated for completion next year. Berg said that once the details are worked out, city officials will let the public know about any scheduled closures.

The city rents out the 1920s-era mansion for weddings, private parties and other events, and Berg said the property managers are making brides aware of the upcoming project.

The mansion, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is inside the 153-acre Rockville Civic Center Park.
