Brandywine / Cheltenham

Brandywine is found along the southern Prince George’s County border with Charles County, Maryland. From the 19th century, this area remained the rural connection between the bedroom communities of Clinton to the north and Waldorf, Maryland to the south. In the 2000s, this area has started to see the addition of shopping centers and housing developments. Transportation needs are served by U.S. Route 301, MD Routes 5, 373, and 381; making possible commutes to the Washington metropolitan area a breeze. This area boosts proximity to parks like the North Keys Community Park and Cedarville State Forest where visitors can enjoy hiking, camping, fishing, and horse trails. Brandywine is also the future home of the Southern Area Aquatics & Recreation Complex (SAARC) offered by the Maryland National Capital Parks & Planning Commission (M-NCPPPC). SAARC will include a natatorium, gymnasium, fitness center, flexible space for community activities, and much more.

Cheltenham is another unincorporated but census designated place (CDP) in Prince George’s County. It is found along U.S. Route 301 and slightly north from Brandywine, Maryland. This area is heavily wooded with mature trees but is also dotted with beautiful farms carved out of the tree scape. Attractions in Cheltenham include the Southern Maryland Regional Farmers Market that offers auctioning of seasonal agricultural products throughout the year. In 1978, a segment of land was included in Maryland’s State Veterans Cemeteries legislation that designated Cheltenham as one of five state veterans cemeteries.
