University Park is a small, tree-lined community of 915 single family homes and 2300 residents in northern Prince George's County, adjacent to the University of Maryland. Having its own municipal government, University Park provides a traditional "small town" atmosphere with urban convenience and amenities. The Town maintains its own park and recreational facilities, is home to an excellent elementary school, and provides its own police and sanitation services. Through local organizations, residents participate in many town-wide events, which build a strong sense of community, such as the Annual Azalea Classic - which consists of a 5k Run/Walk, 1 mile Challenge Run, and the Val Creighton Memorial 1k Family Fun Run. Tree-lined, quiet streets, a large wooded park, and well tended lawns reflect the residents' pride in their community.
The town is located adjacent to the southern edge of the University of Maryland, is about three miles south of the Capital Beltway, two miles from Washington, D.C., and less than a mile from two Metro stations. It provides easy access for commuters, and an ideal location for the local worker.
Listed for the second time by Washingtonian Magazine as one of "The Best Places To Live in Prince George's County," the Town has traditionally attracted many professionals working for the University of Maryland, the public sector, and private business.
The Town of University Park has built a community memorial to serve as a gathering place for reflection and remembrance. For information about this memorial commemorating the lives of loved ones killed in acts of terrorism and war, and to learn how you can contribute to the cause, please visit the UPMD 9/11 Memorial Site .
