Incorporated in 1922, the Town of Brentwood is an economically and culturally diverse community whose 2800 new and longtime residents live in 700 single family homes and several apartment complexes nestled between Queens Chapel Road and U.S. Rte. 1, just outside the Nation’s Capital.
Brentwood is one of four municipalities along Rte. 1 to be designated as part of the Gateway Arts District, and as such is working with the Gateway Community Development Corporation to implement revitalization along the Rte. 1 Corridor. This revitalization, over the next few years, is expected to bring historic preservation events and tourism opportunities to the area, and to attract quality businesses to each of the four towns involved.
The town maintains two beautiful parks -- Bartlett Park, which houses the town hall, a gazebo for cultural events, and playground equipment in a tree shrouded environment; and Veterans Memorial Park, a small but well-landscaped site that provides a serene and meditative setting for honoring residents and former residents who have served in the armed forces of our nation.
The town’s two major vehicular arteries are augmented by public bus lines within easy reach of three metro stations, each of which can transport residents to anywhere in the Washington, D.C. area.
The town’s community events committee plans and carries out a number of activities designed to promote community spirit and civic involvement in the town. Citizen participation in the planning of town events is encouraged.
New residents to the community are provided with welcome packets that contain school information, contact information for county and town offices, trash collection schedules, and other items designed to facilitate settling into the town.
We hope that you will find Brentwood to be a “Better Place to Live,” and that you will feel free to contact us if you desire additional information.
