Help identify opportunities for improving pedestrian safety and access around Druid Hill Park!
The Access Project for Druid Hill Park (TAP Druid Hill) invites residents living on the west side of Druid Hill Park to participate in a set of pedestrian safety walks. Walk in community while identifying opportunities for making our streets safer, especially for seniors and children on foot, wheelchair, bicycle, and e-scooter.
Auchentoroly / Mondawmin Pedestrian Safety Walk – South Blocks
Saturday, June 29, 2-4pm
Rain date: Sunday, June 30, 2-4pm
Meet at the corner of Auchentoroly Terrace & Gwynns Falls Parkway
3326 Auchentoroly Terrace
Auchentoroly / Mondawmin Pedestrian Safety Walk – North Blocks
Saturday, July 27, 2-4pm
Rain date: Sunday, July 28, 2-4pm
Meet in front of Ms. Sandra Almond-Cooper’s house
1644 Gwynns Falls Parkway
Elected officials and city agency representatives are also invited to participate in the walks. Residents will have the chance to identify where crosswalks are needed, speeding cars should be slowed down, intersections made safer, and possible locations for new pedestrian entry points to Druid Hill Park. TAP Druid Hill will combine resident observations and ideas into a report for the Baltimore City Department of Transportation. This report will be considered as part of the forthcoming Druid Hill Park Complete Streets design effort beginning this fall. In addition, TAP Druid Hill will use the report to follow up with city agencies to advocate for immediate action to improve pedestrian safety between Druid Hill Park and Mondawmin Mall.
Bottled water and snacks will be provided. Be sure to check the weather and dress accordingly.

The Access Project for Druid Hill Park is a campaign to better connect residents of West Baltimore with Druid Hill Park. A coalition of residents, city officials, and community partners are working together to increase access to the park through transportation planning, a public health survey, and creating public art for pedestrian safety.
