This is a hidden gem in Baltimore. Some of the surrounding neighborhoods are scary so don't stray too far but the immediate area is beautiful. more »
What a beautiful park! Loved walking around here with my boyfriend on my birthday. I would have loved it if there were benches so we could sit down once in a while.
It's springtime. Even though the weather does not feel like it. We found a community garden located not far from John Hopkins university in Baltimore, Md., that is a perfect hideaway from city life. There is a major open air green space with thousands if blooming daffodils and other bulbs. At my time of visit, the tulips were not blooming. There are trees that the children are climbing and benches for reflection. Bring a picnic basket and blanket, your children and dogs and spend some time outside. Enjoy the smells of the flowers and live life.
