I see they’re soon going to throw a bunch of money at it, which is great and overdue. But for now, Druid Hill Park is perfect — if you’ll allow that perfect here in Baltimore does not mean without flaw, but rather befitting the city surrounding it. Twice a week, three or four if there’s a pandemic, I bike through. From Remington, it’s a 12-mile loop, 14 if I go up to Cold Spring Lane and back. On great days, everyone waves, nods or says hi — the families with the little kids walking around the reservoir, the people on $4,000 road bikes, cool kids on fixies, the joggers with the pain on their faces, sometimes even the older guys washing their cars, speakers blasting R&B.
