Pedestrian Safety Walking Tours
Greater Mondawmin is a collection of strong neighborhoods in West Baltimore sharing an array of educational, recreational, and shopping opportunities. Unfortunately, many residents are unable to safely walk or bike to our local amenities due to the dangerous highway-like streets that ring Druid Hill Park and Mondawmin Mall. Mondawmin Crossings will be an interactive walking tour celebrating our neighborhood history and exploring opportunities for improving pedestrian safety and connectivity between Druid Hill Park and Mondawmin Mall.
