"fun and Funky"

Most commonly known as “Pigtown,” Washington Park is one of the most interesting and culturally diverse neighborhoods in Baltimore. The first thing you’ll notice as your drive through this quaint neighborhood is that it is constantly growing, with new high end town homes being built beside existing structures that are decades old.
You’ll also see vibrant, electric groups of people on the streets, many of whom were originally attracted to the area by the annual fun and funky Pigtown Festival. This includes everyone from young families to street performers to local craftmen and artists. At the same time, you’ll likely notice professionals making their way home from work and blue collar laborers on their way to a shift in one of the local factories.
Another thing that distinguishes Pigtown is its affordable, quality housing, much of which is perfect for young couples starting out. On the edge of the Camden Yards Transportation Center, Pigtown is convenient to Philadelphia and Washington DC via MARC train, downtown Baltimore by bus and the surrounding suburbs by I-95.
But then again, why would anyone want to leave the area unless they had too. It is veritable smorgasbord of shopping, restaurants and entertainment designed to cater to most any kind of taste.
