erwyn is one of the 14 small neighborhoods that make up College Park. It is located one mile north of the University of Maryland. Berwyns boundaries include Greenbelt Road on the north, the railroad tracks on the east, Route 1 (Baltimore Boulevard) on the west and another neighborhood, Lakeland, to the south. Composed of approximately 450 households, Berwyn also is home to Smile Herb Shop, Universal Barbershop, and several businesses at the east end of Berwyn Road, and two churches. The neighborhood is bisected by a bike path that runs the length of College Park and connects to other area bike trails. All of this is built around a well used neighborhood playground in the center. The friendly residents of the active, bustling neighborhood invite you to enjoy living here as much as they do. We suggest you get acquainted with your neighbors and involved in community life by attending Civic Association meetings and volunteering to help with community activities. You will love the sense of belonging that comes with living here.
