Life at St. Charles offers spectacular spaces inside and out, with resort-style amenities throughout the community. From the best schools in Charles County to pools, gardens to parks, and sports to shopping, there’s always something exciting to do right at home.
St. Charles is committed to offering quality neighborhood schools, one of the most important aspects of a thriving planned community. We have donated land for ten neighborhood schools and will continue to support building our community’s future. From pre-school to graduation day, we’re dedicated to helping students of all ages achieve a quality education.
Our clubhouses provide fantastic places for residents of St. Charles can meet up and hang out. Multiple gathering areas mean there’s plenty of space for everyone. Our state-of-the-art fitness center is the perfect place to continue your wellness goals, which can also be worked on in many open-air workout stations around the community. And don’t forget our sparkling swimming pools, great summer spots for aquatic exercising, working on your tan, or just relaxing with the family.
From serene ponds to protected forests, St. Charles is full of natural features, green fields, and mature trees across our 9,100 acres. Weaving around and through the community are miles of paved multi-use trails waiting to help you explore St. Charles on foot or on bike. And kids have their special places, too, playing on our brightly hued playground equipment at various tot lots.
From an 18-hole public golf course to the stadium of the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs minor league baseball team, St. Charles is full of opportunities to participate in and watch sporting and recreation events. Our tennis courts and ball fields are enhanced by the additional outdoor activities in White Plains Regional Park, including lighted tennis courts and ball fields, a 15,000 square foot skateboard park, and a dog park. St. Charles gets the whole family outside and having fun.
St. Charles prides itself as an environmentally friendly, smart growth community, and residents can share in the process with our community garden. Agree to the terms of care and farm a no-cost, first-come-first-served plot of land. Grow flowers for your home or as food for pollinators, raise your own vegetables to make dinner taste fresher, and help feel more connected to our local environment. St. Charles is also committed to the sustainable preservation of our forests through our Piney Reach Forest Management Initiative, which improves, protects, and enhances wildlife habitats and our soil and water resources.
Enjoy fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, and cheeses from our lakeside Farmers Market. Open every Wednesday afternoon and Saturday morning from May through November, this “producers only” market only allows products that are grown,
baked, raised, and prepared by local farmers, and provides a fantastic way to support local businesses. Also right down the road is St. Charles Town Center. This shopping, dining, and entertainment destination always has whatever your family needs and wants to continue living happy in St. Charles.
