ABOUT EDNOR GARDENS - LAKESIDE

Welcome from the Board President:


The Ednor Gardens - Lakeside community is rich in diversity and history. Many of our neighbors have called this community home for decades while a good amount of folks are also new to the community. We pride ourselves in creating a diverse and inclusive community for all residents, families and visitors.

 

Located in Northeast Baltimore, our community borders are 33rd Street in the south, Ellersie Avenue in the west, Argonne Drive and Roundhill Road to the north and Hillen Road in the east. The homes in our neighborhood vary from large and detached single families homes to semi-detached and rowhouses and apartments. We are a very pet friendly community and it is common to see families walking their dogs throughout the day. 

Lake Montebello, on our community's eastern Boarder and the source for the 'Lakeside' in our name, provides a wealth of recreation opportunities and connection to bike and running trails. Up until 2002 Memorial Stadium, former home of the Baltimore Colts and Ravens football teams and the Orioles baseball team, resided in the heart of the community. Now, the space is home to the Waverly YMCA and Govans Ecumenical Development Corporation (GEDCO). GEDCO manages senior living apartments and is planning to open a mixed used commercial center in the coming year. 

Please come back and visit our website again soon for information about what's happening in Ednor Gardens-Lakeside! 

Sincerely,



Shane Bryan​
