Beauty and Mystery in Druid Hill Park

Moorish Castle

Once climbed for its views toward downtown, the Moorish or Turkish tower is long closed but remains a symbol for lakeside strollers. Until mid-20th century, the park touched five Jewish neighborhoods: Lower Park Heights, Mondawmin,  Auchentoroly Terrace, Eutaw Place and Lake Drive. After that, many Jewish residents moved away.  Today people say the park is bounded by Hampden on the east, Reservoir Hill on the south; Mondawmin on the southeast and Woodberry/Clipper Mill on the northwest. Greenspring Avenue runs through.
