Overview of Takoma Park

Originally planned as a commuter suburb of Washington, D.C. the city of Takoma Park, MD has evolved into its own community over the years, becoming the home of a diverse population including many writers, musicians, and artists.  An official "Tree City, USA," this small town is also nicknamed "Azalea City" and is home to an award-winning recycling program, making these Takoma Park apartments for rent the perfect option for any eco-friendly family. With a 2011 estimated population of more than 17,000 residents, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, living here gives you all the amenities of a metropolis nearby without the hustle and bustle of city life.

Living in Takoma Park, MD

In 1883, Benjamin Franklin Gilbert received a title to approximately 100 acres near the Maryland-District of Columbia boundary line to develop a suburban community near the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad route. Due to a friend's suggestion, he named the city "Takoma," a Native American translation meaning "near heaven." In just seven short years the city was incorporated due to the city's rapid growth. Many residents began moving into the area because of its high elevation, a rarity in the often lowland environment of Washington, D.C. Today, the city's unique past can be seen in its historic downtown district.

Takoma Park Attractions and Special Events

Since Takoma Park is known as Azalea City due to its stunning array of horticulture, many residents enjoy the parks and gardens in the city that showcase these beautiful blooms. Despite its small size, the city has more than 25 parks, gardens, and recreational fields for picnicking, sports, hiking, and biking.

Every fall, the city hosts the Takoma Park Street Festival free of charge to its residents. Complete with live music of all styles, more than 150 artisan craft tables, and food vendors, this charming festival attracts people from all over the Washington, D.C., area.
