Located approximately 10 miles northwest of downtown Baltimore and within two miles of the Baltimore County line, Park Heights is a 1,500-acre community comprised of 12 vibrant neighborhoods that include approximately 30,000 residents, more than 80 places of worship and 10 schools.
Park Heights, formerly a solid Jewish community, is now a highly diverse population of cultures, family types, economic statuses and other social characteristics. It has beautiful tree-lined streets with more than a dozen community open space parks. There are many pockets of elegant neighborhoods with well-maintained homes owned by proud longtime residents committed and engaged in the renewed vision for the revitalization of Park Heights.
The Park Heights community is bounded on the south by Druid Park Drive, on the north by Northern Parkway, on the west by Wabash Avenue and on the east by Greenspring Avenue. The two major roadways, Park Heights Avenue and Reisterstown Road, which run north-south through Park Heights, serve as the neighborhood’s “Main Streets,” as well as the location of many of its primary businesses.
Park Heights is the home of Sinai Hospital, the community’s largest employer and one of the State of Maryland’s most well-known landmarks, Pimlico Racetrack — famous for the internationally known “Preakness Stakes.” Just outside of the historic district of Park Circle lies Druid Hill Park, Baltimore’s first and largest municipal park. The park is home to the Maryland Zoo, the third oldest zoo in the country.
