The Robert W. Lebling Memorial Park, located on Wisconsin Avenue and Old Georgetown Road, adjacent to the Hyatt Regency, will be dedicated Friday, June 28 at 3 p.m.
The park was constructed in memory of Robert W. Lebling, a long-time Bethesda resident who spearheaded the Bethesda Beautification Project during his 1964 and 1965 terms as president of the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Chamber of Commerce. The project was honored by First Lady Lady Bird Johnson at the White House in 1965 during Lebling’s term as Chamber president.
Lebling, a graduate of Holy Cross College, was president and owner of Samuel E. Bogley of Maryland, a Bethesda-based real estate company. He was named “Realtor of the Year” in 1970 by the Montgomery County Board Realtors, and was active in commercial and residential development throughout his career.
His Wife, Rita Walsh Lebling, and their six children survive Lebling, a resident of Montgomery County since 1936.
