Four Corners is not incorporated, but many of its residents in Montgomery County, Maryland consider themselves to be a part of Silver Spring. Four Corners borders the Northwood Park and began as an agricultural community in the 19th century. It was rural until after World War 1 when development expanded into single-family home subdivisions. In the 1950s, Four Corners developed much more extensively, so many of the homes in this area are quite new. Four Corners is almost entirely residential with some businesses along the Capital Beltway Outer Loop.

Most of the businesses are clustered in the northeast corner of the neighborhood where Colesville Road and University Boulevard East meet. Several businesses in this area exist to serve your dog. The Studio Grooming Salon can get your dog looking good while Paws for Health in-home dog training offers training at their facility or in your home so you can customize training for your pup’s behavior.

Four Corners is made up of charming family homes on large lots. Most homes are of only one story and alternate between wood and brick. There are few sidewalks, but you do not miss them much on the relatively little-trafficked roads with plenty of grassy yards to walk along. In areas where yards are fenced, sidewalks are provided.

You can walk with your dog on a loose leash or enjoy being on wheels with your dog throughout this neighborhood which is mostly flat. Plenty of tall tree cover will keep you cool on hot Maryland days and lots of diversity in shrubbery and tree cover gives you a beautiful show as the colors change in fall and spring. For a more exciting walk, you have only to head to the west perimeter of Four Corners and the lovely Sligo Creek. Extensive forest space and natural shorelines make this a varied and interesting walk.

The wide grassy yards of Four Corners can make you feel like you are walking through a park throughout the entire neighborhood, but you haven't got far to go to find much more extensive natural wilderness. The forest around Sligo Creek is very old, mature forest that provides a timeless experience as you wander along the creek. The creek is not large and its flow varies depending on local rainfall, but it is always a beautiful environment to walk through. You can follow the creek north for many miles. 


The Sligo Creek Parkway runs all the way along this space so that you can enjoy being on the pavement or being on wheels with your dog while still appreciating nature. All the way down, there are acres of forest on either side of the creek so you will not be taken out of the experience of nature even if you travel for many many miles.
