Over its 308 total acres, the Poplar Run community is committed to preserving open green space for fully half that land, with more than 70 acres dedicated to the expansion of the Northwest Branch Stream Valley Park. This is not just a GREEN idea; it is a great way to ensure the character of a welcoming community. And, because Poplar Run is built on the site of a former country club, it is surprisingly close to downtown Silver Spring and all the shopping and entertaining that implies. Plus, it is just minutes from the Metro red line. Visit our community on Google+.
