Valley Mede is a neighborhood of single family homes located off of Baltimore National Pike in the heart of Ellicott City. Some call this neighborhood the “Best Kept Secret” of Howard County. Many people zoom past the entrance and see the sign but never make it back into the community. With the streets being extra wide and the homes situated on +/- half acre lots the neighborhood has a park like feel with a strong sense of community. In the back of the community there is Cypress Mede Park that is considered to be one of the treasures within the community.
Cypress Mede Park has a playground, tennis courts, basketball nets, ball fields, and hiking trails. Those that live in the community believe that it is like having a private park within the community. There are many community events that happen within the community every year. This includes a Fourth of July Parade, Halloween Parade and activities for kids, Santa on the firetruck Parade, Mt. Hebron Homecoming parade, Valley Mede Fun Run and 5K fundraiser for Cure Search for Children’s Cancer and many additional smaller events.
There is a voluntary Home Owners Association that has regular board meetings. The purpose of the Associate is to keep the community together through activities, events, and communication. There are no covenants or restrictions within Valley Mede.
Valley Mede is centrally located and close to all the local stores, restaurants, parks, and highways. The Valley Mede neighborhood is zoned for St. John’s Lane Elementary School, Patapsco Middle School and Mt. Hebron High School (please always verify this has not changed at www.hcpss.org). The schools are one of the main reason that family will buy within the community.
