College Park / Berwyn Heights

College Park, Maryland is about four miles outside of the northeastern corner of Washington D.C. and was a railway stop along the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad (B & O Railroad) in the mid-1800s. Around the same time the Maryland Agricultural College opened its doors and after a few name changes became known as the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD); the hub of the University System of Maryland. UMD is a public research university and is the largest in Maryland and nearby Washington. College Park is easily accessible by Interstates 95 and 495, U.S. Routes 1 and MD Route 193. Aviation enthusiasts cherish the College Park Airport that opened in 1909, making it the oldest continuously operating airport in the United States. Public transit is available on Washington Metro’s Green Line for commuting to and from the city and will soon offer a Purple Line that will provide travel between other Maryland suburb towns. Modern conveniences blended with historic character is why College Park could be a contender when making your next real estate lifestyle decision.

A little to the east of College Park along Md Route 193 is where you will find Berwyn Heights. There are many recreational facilities in this area that include athletic fields, playgrounds, field hockey rink, basketball courts, hiking and bike trails, and picnic areas. Most home sites are seated on the hillsides of the Indian Creek valley that provide wonderful views. This municipality has its own police force and other services to residents. There is a tightknit feeling to the community here which is rare for a Washington D.C. suburb and make living here desirable for amenities and community culture. Lake Artemesia is a hidden gem and a must see when exploring Berwyn Heights.
