"Why so many parks?"

Harlem Park is a neighborhood in the west section of the city. West Lafayette Avenue, North Fremont Avenue, West Mulberry Street, and North Monroe Street generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The neighborhood is a mixture of commercial and residential uses. Homes here are typically attached single-family “row home” style structures that are found throughout Baltimore City.

One of the interesting things about Harlem Park is the amount of dedicated green space and parks here. In addition to Harlem Square Park and Lafayette Square Park, there are at least 25 other parks within the neighborhood for residents to enjoy. Augusta Falls Savage Institute of Visual Arts, Youth Opportunity School and Harlem Park Middle School are the only school located within Harlem Park. There are a number of places to worship here including Saint James Episcopal Church and Unity Christian Church. Shopping and restaurants are somewhat limited, so many will want to venture into other neighborhoods for these activities. Access to mass transit is available with a number of bus stops being located within Harlem Park.

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 not sure of this neighborhood despite the number of parks. I would check into the most recent crime data and also look into why these smaller parks were created. Take a look at the neighborhood for yourself and make your own decision.
