Attendees will be required to adhere to the local Montgomery County mandates on mask use for vaccinated and unvaccinated persons while attending all outdoor King Farm activities and events.

Pool Locker Room – Soap Dispenser Issue

This is a friendly reminder to be courteous in the pool showers/locker rooms. Management has received complaints that on several occasions the soap from the shower dispensers has been pumped out and spread all over the locker room floor. Please be mindful as this is not only a waste of soap but it creates slippery conditions for patrons to fall and additional work for the cleaning staff to clean up. While we do not know who is doing this, we want to remind everyone to not play with the soap dispensers.

Unauthorized Use of King Farm Parking Lots

We continue to receive complaints about non-authorized vehicles parking in spaces within lots. This is a reminder that vehicles without the proper hang tag will be towed. Any of the parking lots managed by King Farm (listed below) with King Farm signage at the entrance/exit of those lots are subject to towing without additional notice.

Commercial & Other Vehicles – Remember that commercial vehicles should not be parked in King Farm overnight unless they can be parked in a private garage. While we understand the need to use commercial vehicles when moving in or out of the community, please communicate those plans to the Management Office. Unauthorized vehicles, trailers, RVs, etc. on City streets will be addressed by the City of Rockville and by the Assembly on private streets.

Townhomes backing to lots – The parking lots are for designated users, so be reminded that neither you nor guests are allowed to park in these lots and will be towed without additional notice.

If you do not have a parking hang tag, please email Management@kingfarm.org. Only one parking hang tag is issued per unit.

King Farm Managed Lots:

  • 205 and 229 Cork Tree Lane
  • 501 and 503 King Farm Blvd
  • 200 Ridgemont Ave and 201 Poplar Spring Rd
  • 1002 Elmcroft Blvd
  • King Farm Parking Lot – corner of Saddle Ridge Circle and Thompson Dairy. Permission must be obtained from KFCA Management for overnight parking.

The Assembly amended the Towing resolution (Administrative Resolution No. 3):

Vehicles without appropriate hang tag can be towed without additional notice. We encourage all residents to sign up for KFCA Management emails by visiting the website: www.kingfarm.org. Additionally, more information about parking and other helpful resources can be found on the website.
