Welcome to the City of College Park
The city is perhaps best known as home to the flagship campus of the University of Maryland. More surprising is that a significant chapter in early aviation history began here in 1909 at the world's oldest continuously operating airport. Today, University sports, academic conferences and competitions, and cultural events draw thousands of visitors to College Park each year.
The City has grown as a series of neighborhoods. Beyond busy Route 1 (Baltimore Avenue) there are 11 distinct residential neighborhoods that create a small town atmosphere. Enjoy the historic neighborhoods of Old Town and Calvert Hills. Visit our parks, beautiful Lake Artemesia, the aviation museum and other amenities, many of which are linked by hiker-biker trails.
College Park, come visit, come study of come stay!
