The New Carrollton Metro Park is home to many large public and private organizations including agencies of the State of Maryland, Maryland Park Police, IRS, Giant Food, Kaiser Permanente, 2U, and Northrop Grumman. The combination of Metro and regional highway access and affordability is a significant draw. Further, the park will have direct connectivity to Montgomery County via Metro’s Purple line which will connect to New Carrollton Metro in the next five to seven years.
