It's a quiet community for the most part. The county is very responsive during snow time and the area is very diverse and the property value is on the rise. I've lived here for 15 years and the worst I've seen is a few incidences where people try car doors late at night. The schools are not the best. The sad thing is, you can go 5 blocks over to Catonsville and the schools are totally different. Great value for housing and great neighborhood.

Quiet home owners,friendly neighborhood. Good community, dog owners embraced. Safe several police reside in community. Close to interstate, and shopping. Large townhomes, convenient to my work, amd shopping. Home owners association, grass cutting snow removal. Beatification of community done by HOA.
Woodlawn is just like Columbia, Maryland, but without the Howard County sky-high prices! Quiet community, Homeowner's Association, miles and miles of sidewalk and grassy areas, and a similar community feel.
