"Lake Walker is Baltimore's Best Kept Secret"

Lake Walker is one of my favorite Baltimore neighborhoods. The housing stock consists of quaint well maintained bungalows, and lovely townhomes along Lake Avenue. The community is extremely friendly and close knit. It's within walking distance to two super markets, including the very posh Belvedere Square, as well as a gym, movie theatre, and park. There are also several casual and sit down restaurants within walking distance. It's a great neighborhood for both families and singles. The neighborhood was also approved for a new charter school recently that will be housed in a brand new building. This is sure to attract even more families. Most of the housing stock is well kept, with a few homes remaining that are ripe for renovation. With all the amenities I don;t know how this place stays so low key. They even have a great community blog at http://bmorebungalow.blogspot.com/

"Where is the lake?"

Mill Hill is a neighborhood located in the north region of Baltimore. York Road, Walker Avenue, Northwood Drive and East Lake Avenue generally form the borders of the neighborhood. This is a strictly residential neighborhood with a mixture of detached single-family homes as well as attached single-family “row house” style homes. There is also a significant number of multifamily housing here as well. House are typically well maintained and are on tree lined lots. This neighborhood is somewhat unique in the number of detached single-family homes.

Residents will find dedicated green space in Chinquapin Run Park., which is a lineal park that runs thru several neighborhoods. There are a number of bus stops on the main streets for those residents wanting to take advantage of public transportation. Shopping, places of worship, restaurants and schools will not be found here. Residents need to venture outside of Lake Walker to find these amenities.

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.

Definitely take a look at this Mill Hill if you are interested in a strictly residential neighborhood, especially one that offers detached single-family homes. Who cares about a lake!
