Towson is in the midst of a renaissance. And the best place to be part of this renaissance is in one of Towson’s most livable, diverse and vibrant communities. Within walking distance of the heart of Towson, Knollwood is a sought after urban oasis known for tree-lined streets; quiet evening walks, and a strong community spirit. It’s the perfect place to be part of Towson’s renaissance or sit back and watch it unfold.


Since Knollwood is one of the closest communities to downtown Towson, everything is within a safe and easy 20-minute walk. That’s a 20-minute walk to our many sidewalk cafes and restaurants. Or 20-minute walk to a yoga studio, farmers’ market, latest blockbuster movie or world-class shopping mall. Just want a short walk, bike or run? It’s right outside your door on any of our quiet streets.


Like Towson, Knollwood offers something for everybody. We have a wide range of housing styles and architecture. We offer mid-century modern, quaint, cozy or colonial. Our safe streets and award winning schools make Knollwood attractive to families. Young professionals are attracted to Towson’s vibrant social life and the easy commute to Baltimore’s downtown career opportunities. Students love the close proximity to Towson University and upon graduation; many stay with us as permanent neighbors.


In Knollwood, it’s our strong community spirit that has been attracting homebuyers for decades. Throughout the year, our community organizes events that bring us together for fun or for a cause. We have a series of summer block parties, our Haunted Knollwood Halloween party and Santa arrives every December. We’re keeping Knollwood green with our spring tree planting initiative and our Fall Recycling efforts. In 2018, we’re helping keep Knollwood healthy by promoting local Farming CSAs, planning for our second 5K race, and a new series of outdoor movies.

The mission of the Knollwood Association is to keep our residents connected to each other and to the Greater Towson region.
