The rolling wooded landscape of central Maryland is home to the largest planned community in Anne Arundel County. Piney Orchard is a beautiful development of more than 3,900 condominiums, town homes and single family homes built to supply the growing desire for housing within a short commuting distance of Fort Meade, Baltimore, Annapolis and Washington, DC. If you are seeking a suburban life in a neighborhood with excellent schools and wonderful amenities, Piney Orchard is the community for you and your family.
Piney Orchard is located within Odenton, a city built to serve railroads. In 1868, where the newly built B & P railroad crossed the A & ER railroad, a train station and telegraph office was built and named for Oden Bowie, former state governor and president of the B & P. This site is today’s MARC station. Odenton’s growth has always been closely tied to Fort Meade west of the city. The nearby Baltimore Washington International (BWI) airport and Amtrack Maintenance Facility have transformed Odenton today into an industrial, business and residential center with a population of 37,132.
