traditional classics and charming bungalows. While each Brunswick Forest neighborhood has its own distinctive character, open space is a common theme, as are gracious parks, walkways and nature trails. Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2017, the community is flourishing with indoor and outdoor swimming pools, well-lit tennis and pickleball courts, and a well-equipped fitness and wellness center. It borders Town Creek, a hub for canoeing, kayaking and fishing, and there are miles upon miles of walking, biking and nature trails. The spacious Community Commons is a gathering place for resident activities such as book clubs, card games and cooking classes. The cornerstone of the Brunswick Forest developer team is Lord Baltimore Capital Corporation, a nearly $2 billion private investment organization and division of Amoco, one of the country’s first oil companies. Since 1921 Lord Baltimore Capital Corporation has been recognized as a respected steward that understands the responsibility of sensitive development and the importance of planning for the long term. Because of the financial strength of the developer and a complete absence of debt in the community, residents have peace of mind in an amenity-rich community. “We are proud to provide such an ample variety of home and lifestyles here in
