An unexpected urban oasis borders the Baltimore City / Baltimore County line. This park beckons you to hike the little-known trails that follow the edge of Lake Roland and an
abandoned railroad bed. Get a close-up look at Lake Roland
Dam and enjoy the newly renovated park grounds.
After a major facelift, this 453-acre park once overrun by dogs and closed to the public for several years is now a local gem for hikers, trail runners, dog owners, and paddlers. After a renovation costing more than $6 million, the park, which is leased to Baltimore County, reopened in 2011. You’ll find an outstanding network of trails, pavilions and grassy areas for picnicking, restroom facilities, a boat launch, and fishing platforms.
