On the other side of the railroad tracks from the University of Maryland is an oasis of nature within the suburban jungle of Prince Georges County. Named after Artemesia Dref, who donated ten lots for green space in 1972, this park is an incredible gift to the neighboring communities of Berwyn Heights and College Park and an island of refuge for migrating and native birds. Inside the gated park, the paved trail circles the two finger-like lakes that are connected by an inlet. Linking the outside 1.4-mile loop is an extension via a bridge onto a peninsula furnished with bathrooms, a floating dock, a raised gazebo to observe waterfowl, and a stage with grassy steps perfect for summertime concerts. In addition to these amenities.
