Garrett Park is a commuter rail station in Garrett Park, Maryland, USA. It is served by limited trains on the MARC Brunswick Line, some of which stop at the station and some of which are flag stops. The station has limited parking on the adjacent street.[3]

Station layout[edit]

The station has two low-level concrete side platforms and a small shelter on the inbound platform.[3] The shelter was originally located at the former Landover commuter rail station.[citation needed] The platform is long enough for three single-level cars to platform, although only one set of doors is typically opened.[citation needed]
