"What a park!"

Carroll Park is a neighborhood in the southwest section of the city that is the home of the Carroll Park Municipal Golf Course. Bayard Street, Washington Street, I-95 and a set of railroad tracks to the east of Wilkens Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. This neighborhood does have a small residential component along Bayard Avenue, but for the most part it is all dedicated green space.

Residents will find the Charles Carroll Barrister Elementary School on the outskirts of the neighborhood, as well as the Southwest Baltimore Charter School. Residents will need to go into adjacent neighborhoods for shopping, dining, places of worship. Residents as well as visitors to the neighborhood will find an excellent park and recreation facility including a golf course, six baseball / softball fields, tennis courts, hiking trails and the Mount Clare Museum House. Visitors will appreciate the ease of access since the neighborhood is just off of I-95.

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 am a huge fan of this park as it is excellent! Since I love to play golf and really enjoy this course, I would seriously consider living nearby just to enjoy Carroll Park. Even if you do not move into the neighborhood, you should definitely visit Carroll Park one afternoon with the family.
