I love it here. I have been living here for about 4 years. My husband and I sought this area due to great reviews from others. My children have plenty to do to keep them active from the playgrounds, to the pool and the golf course. It helps that we are only about 25 minutes from DC, we visit the Wharf, the National Harbor and the National Stadium rather frequently. There is a state park across the street from the neighborhood with mountain bike trails (Rosaryville State Park.) There are also museums and Patuxent River park right around the corner off Croom Road. We have very pleasant and caring neighbors. I love that the children in the community actually play outside and ride bikes. We love it here and look forward to many years of joy in this community.

Moved here a few months ago. I never realized the beauty of Marlton until one mild summer weekend, I drove through the back roads and did my own sight-seeing tour. There aren't many places left - especially near DC - with a beautiful wood setting.
Good place to raise small children. Can be expensive to live and can use more nearby food places. Overall, it is a great neighborhood. Most people are friendly and take pride in the neighborhood.
