"Close knit and active"

One of the defining characteristics of Woodbourne Heights, a community in northern Baltimore, is the high degree of civic involvement among many of its residents. The area sports not one, not two, but three associations—the Woodbourne Heights Community, the Woodbourne-McCabe Neighborhood, and and Beauregard Neighborhood Associations. Each has worked hard over the years to keep the area as a nice place to live. For the most part, they have succeeded in keeping this predominately African-American middle-class neighborhood of homeowners and renters as a desirable area for Baltimore residents to call home. With Chinquapin Park nearby and a close proximity to Morgan State University, young families, students and professionals might want to take a look at this neighborhood. City Garden plots that can be rented on a yearly basis by city residents are located on Woodbourne Avenue, making the area particularly inviting for residents who want to give their green thumbs a workout. The Belvedere Square Shopping Centers feature boutique retail shops and a European-style fresh food market that appeals to an upscale clientel. For this reason, young stylish couples should also give Woodbourne Heights a look if they are looking for a neighborhood that combines close proximity to the city and, an upscale urban vibe, and elements of green living.
