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.

Nearly four years after Baltimore City Department of Recreation and Parks (BCRP) began work on the "Druid Hill Neighborhood Access Improvements" the improved ADA sidewalk ramps and traffic signals are finally complete! We are exited to have basic park access restored to the 2016 level.
Thanks to the continued advocacy of resident leaders, TAP Druid Hill is excited to report the installation of four new crosswalks at intersections along south Auchentoroly Terrace and at Druid Hill Avenue where marked crossings never before existed. These four intersections provide critical pedestrian links between neighborhoods around Druid Hill Park and our adjacent green spaces.
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 on Saturday June 29, 2-4pm, and Saturday July 27, 2-4pm. Walk in community while identifying opportunities for making our streets safer, especially for seniors and children on foot, wheelchair, bicycle, and e-scooter.
After three years of advocacy by residents, elected officials, and TAP Druid Hill, the crosswalks to Druid Hill Park along Auchentoroly Terrace at Gwynns Falls Parkway and Fulton Avenue are finally repaired. In early 2017 the crosswalks were ground off as part of a park access improvement project. After years of advocacy by residents and TAP Druid Hill DOT crews came out in late April and mid May to re-stripe the crosswalks at Gwynns Falls Parkway and Fulton Avenue.
