All about

Kings Contrivance, Columbia, MD

Residents of the Kings Contrivance apartments for rent are situated in Columbia, Md., a peaceful suburb that maintains a rural flare with its large spreads of tall evergreen trees, beautiful parks and crystalline bodies of water. This domestic domain is ideal for families who are looking to start a new chapter in their lives in a placid, friendly environment that is only a short drive away from the thrumming urban environment of Washington D.C. 

Outdoor Fun
As winter gives way to spring, Maryland is graced with seasonable temperatures and bright sunny days. To take advantage of the East Coast climes, you can head outdoors to one of the local parks, which are just a short stroll away from the apartments for rent in Kings Contrivance. Dickinson Park has a well-kept baseball diamond, where you can play a game of baseball with the neighbors or hit a couple grounders with the little ones. For scenic nature walks, there's Gorman Park, which is a large wooded area where you and the kids can enjoy the springtime heat while being shielded from the sun underneath the thick canopy. Also nearby is Lake Elkhorn - a pleasant pond surrounded by homes, which serves as an ideal spot to relax and enjoy some lemonade with the neighbors as you enjoy the sunset. 

Transportation
While the neighborhood lacks public transportation, you still have ample access to vibrant city centers via the main highways that cut through the community. To the east is Interstate 95, which not only goes into Washington D.C., but also runs up and down the East Coast making it the ideal route for family road trips. Also nearby the Kings Contrivance apartments is Highway 29, which is perpendicular to Route 32, also known as the Patuxent Freeway. 

Schools
The community surrounding the apartments in Kings Contrivance has an air of academia about it, not only because of the scores of great educational institutions in nearby Washington D.C., but also because the Johns Hopkins campus is right next door. Your little ones will be able to attend the public Guilford Elementary School on Oakland Mills Road. "My child has had great teachers at Guilford," a parent writes on GreatSchools.org. "They're responsive when I make inquiries; they meet whenever I ask them to. We have lots of parent involvement and lots of opportunities to nurture a love of learning." Also in the area is the Young School Early Education, which is focused on the intellectual development and academic achievement of its pupils.
