College Park Overview

College Park is an incorporated city in Prince George's County in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. Officially established in 1945, the community grew up around the old Maryland Agricultural College that was founded in 1856. Today it is home to the main campus of the University of Maryland (the successor to the Agricultural College), the largest campus in both the state of Maryland and the Washington metropolitan region.

Byrd Stadium and the Comcast Center on campus host the university football and basketball teams respectively. The Terrapins (or Terps for short) basketball team won the national championship in 2002. College Park is also home to a branch of the National Archives, the College Park Aviation Museum, and the National Museum of Language.
