"Like green space?"

Coldspring is a residential neighborhood in the north section of Baltimore. I-83, West Cold Springs Lane, Greenspring Lane and Cyburn Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. In addition, the neighborhood is also the home of the Cyburn Arboretum. Homes here tend to be newer attached single and multi-family homes.

The Waldorf School of Baltimore and the KIPP Ujima Village Academy are the two schools located in Coldspring. Since this is primarily a residential neighborhood, residents will need to venture into other areas to find shopping, restaurants, place of worship and other amenities. If you like dedicated green space, you are going to really enjoy the Arboretum, which is heavily wooded. There are a limited number of bus stops in the neighborhood to provide access to the city’s public transportation system.

There Like many neighborhoods in large cities, crimes against people and property can occur at any time and crime rates can vary from street to street and day to day. As always, check recent crime statistics to make an informed decision on any neighborhood you are considering living in or visiting.

I really like the easy access to I-83 for commuting and am a big fan of large tracts of dedicated green space, so I really like this neighborhood. Take a look at it if you are looking for a new place to live.
