Thank you to everyone for making the March 18th Stories for Change Premiere a beautiful success! Created by filmmaker Kurt Orderson with The Access Projects for Druid Hill Park (TAP Druid Hill) and the New Auchentoroly Terrace Association (ATA), the three short films of Stories for Change highlight the experiences of local residents' love for Druid Hill Park and their challenges getting to the park on foot.
On April 3rd and 4th, 2022, the Auchentoroly Terrace and Greater Mondawmin community came together to create the Druid Hill Canopy Crosswalk. This project has been years in the making. The Druid Hill Canopy Crosswalk celebrates green space access while joyfully enhancing street-crossing safety for West Baltimoreans walking to Druid Hill Park. Community members previously nominated their favorite park trees to be represented in the artwork and later co-created the project during a community paint day.
