Fort Meade is also home to seven Anne Arundel County public schools: West Meade Early Education Center, Manor View Elementary School, Meade Heights Elementary School, Pershing Hill Elementary School, MacArthur Middle School, Meade Middle School and Meade High School.
With Fort Meade’s population set to grow from approximately 55,000 to 58,000 by 2025, its impact on Central Maryland will continue to grow as well.

      Laurel Park
Laurel Park has hosted thoroughbred horse racing since 1911, but it isn’t showing its age. The track boasts all the modern amenities that racing fans could wish for, including simulcast rooms, terrace dining and comfortable bars.
Most famously, Laurel Park hosts Maryland Million Day, an annual day of stakes races that ranks as Laurel’s highest single day in attendance and on-track wagering, offering purses totaling $1 million.

  Merriweather Post Pavilion
Columbia’s famous outdoor music venue regularly attracts nationally known headliners such as the Foo Fighters, CAKE and Kenny Chesney.
Merriweather was designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry and from its inception hosted all-time greats like, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, in its natural, wooded setting. More recently, the facility has embraced sustainability by installing solar panels to power its lights and building new structures using the LEED green-building standard.
