"Great neighborhood"

Hunting Ridge is a very nice residential neighborhood that is adjacent to Leakin Park. Edmondson Avenue, Cooks Lane, North Franklintown Road and Swn Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The homes here include the typical attached single-family “row homes” found throughout Baltimore, as well as a large number of single-family detached homes. Most appear to be relatively well maintained.

This neighborhood has lots to offer! Shopping and restaurants are available in the Edmondson Village Shopping Center along Edmondson Road. Residents with children will appreciate having the Thomas Jefferson Elementary School here as well as the nearby Saint William of York School and Rognel Heights Elementary Middle School. I love green space and Leakin Park is a great place to walk and explore. There are several places of worship in the neighborhood as well. One negative is that public transportation is not available.

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 this neighborhood because it does many things well. I like the mixture of homes, close by shopping, the schools and especially the park. This neighborhood should definitely be on anyone’s short list!
