Gambrills refers to two neighboring places in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, in the Baltimore metro area: the unincorporated community of Gambrills, and the Gambrills census-designated place (CDP). The original community of Gambrills is now part of the Odenton CDP, while the Gambrills CDP lies to the northeast of the original community. The area was named for Augustine Gambrill, plantation owner. The population of the CDP was 2,800 at the 2010 census, up from 1,759 in 2000. The community is very far away from major population centers, making commutes difficult and unpredictable.
The original village of Gambrills is located along Maryland Route 175 (Annapolis Road), 2 miles (3 km) southeast of the center of Odenton. The CDP of Gambrills is to the northeast, separated from the village by Maryland Route 32, the Patuxent Freeway. The Gambrills CDP is bordered to the east by Interstate 97, a freeway connecting Baltimore and Annapolis.
The area is served by the following schools, all of which have Gambrills mailing addresses but are within the Odenton CDP:
