Garwyn Oaks is one of Baltimore’s older communities and is part of the Healthy Neighborhoods initiative. Many residents have lived in the community for 30 years or more. The community is nestled among bountiful trees, flower gardens, open spaces, and wide, well-lit streets. The beauty of the area is in its tranquility, abundant greenery, and variety of housing. It is a community of families, children and seniors alike; backyard cookouts, young people playing ball and riding bikes. The community is comprised of professionals, white and blue collar workers, self-employed, and retired individuals. The community has over 300 properties. Garwyn Oaks’ history is intertwined with the communities of areas known as Walbrook and Windsor Hills, which were formed from estates of Baltimore’s elite. The estate of George R. Vickers, Mount Alto, provided the land for the community of Garwyn Oaks. Much of the distinctive development in the area - the single family detached, wood frame and shingle cottage homes - were built in the early 1900’s. The Garwyn Oaks United Neighbors Association, Inc., originally the Garrison Blvd United Neighbors Association (GBUNA) founded in 1982, has worked to maintain the beauty, tranquility, and distinction of the area.
