"Lots of green space"

Park Circle is a neighborhood that is located in the northwest section of the city with lots to offer its residents. Druid Park Drive, Wabash Avenue, Oswego Avenue, Park Heights Avenue, Springhill Avenue and Greenspring Avenue generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The homes here are typically attached single-family “row homes” found in many areas of Baltimore. There are also a number of multifamily buildings here as well as commercial buildings. In general the homes here are in good condition and appear to be well maintained.

Doctor Martin Luther King Elementary School is located here along Greenspring Avenue. Although not actually in Park Circle, Kennedy Krieger High School is on the other side of Greenspring Avenue. I like the dedicated green space here including Greenspring Avenue Park, Cotwood Place Traffic Island, Towanda Playground, Cottage Avenue Park, Shirely Avenue Street Park and the nearby sprawling Druid Park. There are a number of shops and places to eat in Park Circle, but more variety will be found in other neighborhoods. As with many Baltimore neighborhoods access to mass transit is available with numerous bus stops located along the main roads. Many will like the easy access to I-83.

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.

Since I really like green space, I really like this neighborhood. It should definitely be considered if you are interested in this part of town.
