"Could Be a Nice Place for the Right Family"

Parklane is a small, almost exclusively African American neighborhood in North Baltimore. While the population tends to be lower middle income, it does have many of the features that one would expect to find in a more affluent area. For instance, it has two significant green spaces, Edgecombe Park and Pal Mall Playground. While some families are concerned about the dangers of drugs and violence in these public areas, they are typically pretty safe during daylight hours. For indoor recreation, the James D. Gross Recreation Center offers a gym, meetings rooms, a computer lab and some workout equipment.
Most children in the neighborhood attend the Edgecombe Circle Elementary School, a small public school with a low teacher to student ratio, through the 5th grade. In addition to offering education, this school provides both free breakfasts and lunches to most of its students, as well as afterschool care.
Parkland also has a good bus service, with several routes running through the area. Residents can take these buses to visit historic Fort McHenry, or to connect with a Baltimore Metro train, as well as to work and higher education, social events or dinner and a movie.
