Druid Hill Park At Auchentoroly Terrace
Druid Hill Park at Auchentoroly Terrace is Parks & People's most ambitious project to date. We are thrilled to be working with our terrific partners to reclaim a historic slice of Druid Hill Park and create a new community hub which will provide space and resources for educational, environmental and recreational programs, neighborhood meetings, special events and more.
So far we have restored a nine-acre corner of Baltimore’s premier park, Druid Hill, transforming it from a dangerous eyesore to a community asset. This triangular section of the park, located at the corners of Liberty Heights Avenue, Auchentoroly Terrace and Reisterstown Road (see the site plan in the image gallery below) is starting to see new life. The construction on the stone Superintendent's House will be completed in July 2013.
To accomplish this remarkable goal, the Parks & People Foundation has embarked on a $12.2 million dollar campaign to restore the original landscape, rehabilitate the historic Superintendent’s House and build a new LEED Platinum certified building which will house an ecology center, administrative offices for the Foundation and more.
We invite you to scroll through the photos on the bottom of this page to view images of the project and the progress we have made in creating a permanent home to improve and expand our programming and better serve the people of Baltimore.
