"Return to Eden"

The Druid Hill Park neighborhood takes its name from the center piece of its community, one of the oldest continually maintained public parks in the United States. Built on the eve of the Civil War around an already existing mansion, “Drudle Park,” as the locals call it, features whimsical architecture and some of the best sledding hills in the area. Joggers love to take their morning runs through the northern end of the park, which features some of the oldest trees in the state. It rivals New York’s famous central park in both its size and age, not to mention its careful maintenance. The City of Baltimore is constantly looking for ways to improve that park, including installing state of the art exercise equipment, draining man-made lakes to provide more natural space, and making sure the paths are well maintained.
Unfortunately, there are very few places for people to live in Druid Park, since most of the land is devoted to green space. However, those wishing to take advantage of its many amenities can find reasonable housing in any of several surrounding neighborhoods that share boundaries with the area. They include Reservoir Hill, Parkview, Liberty Square, Hampden, Park Circle, Woodbrook, and Woodbury.
