"Life in the Garden"

Clifton Park is a bit of community within a community in northeast Baltimore. Located within the boundaries of Belair-Edison, Clifton Park is popular among golfers for its 18 hole green and the annual Clifton Park Golf Tournament. Perhaps the most distinctive feature of the community is the 19th century Italian style villa that houses the golf club’s pro shop.

Another unusual feature of the community is the Valve House, an octagonal building originally used to house a 19th century water pump house that originally provided water for the entire community.
Clifton Park was very fortunate during the riots that destroyed much of Baltimore and Washington DC in 1968. While they suffered the inconvenience of having the national guard camping out in their beautiful park, they also benefited from the protection of the soldiers’ constant presence.
Clifton Park boasts Baltimore’s largest high school, Lake Clifton Eastern High, which is actually two smaller schools put together.
One of the most attractive features of Clifton Park is its 6 acre Real Food Farm that provides small plots of arable land for local residents to grow fresh vegetables during the summer. This program, similar to the allotment programs popular in Europe, allows those who might not otherwise be able to afford fresh foods access to healthy and tasty alternatives to canned goods.
