"Hard Work Pays Off"

Waltherson stand in mute testimony of what can be accomplished in a neighborhood when residents band together to defend their homes and businesses against encroaching trouble. Like many communities in the 1980s Baltmiore, Waltherson was once a dying area, plagued by ever increasing crime, falling property values and unsafe streets. However, all that changed in 1990, the residents got together to form the Gardenville Nieghborhood Association (named Gardenville after Waltherson’s popular local nickname).
With more than 200 members currently, the GNA has done an amazing job improving life in Waltherson. One of their first actions was to organize a citizen watch group to combat crime. Simply by keeping an eye out on what was going on and calling the police to report suspicious activity, they have seen a marked decline in the number of thefts and violent crime over the last two decades. They neighborhood association has also hosted numerous clean up and neighborhood beautification projects. Through their efforts, homes that were once in disrepair are not well cared for, and streets once strewn with littler now host children playing.
Today Waltherson is a pleasant, stable neighborhood knows for its good neighbors, well maintained playing field where Little Leaguers frolic and the Rosedale Park, where joggers run in the morning and children play in the afternoon after school.
