Garrett Park is a commuter rail station in Garrett Park, Maryland. It is a stop on MARC Train's Brunswick Line, which makes eight mandatory, daily stops at Garrett Park. The train also makes two optional flag stops on weekdays. The station has no building but it does have a small shelter. Tickets can be bought on the train.

The platform is concrete with a shelter on the Washington-bound side. It is long enough to enable 3 single level cars to stop at the platform, although only one set of doors is used to board/unload. The shelter was from the old Landover station.

There are 22 parking spaces. Parking is also available on the neighborhood street.
