These are 4 places that you may not have heard of before. Even if you’ve been to them a hundred times, there’s always a new leaf to turn in Baltimore’s parks.

Even though it’s smaller than many of the other reserves in the city, it has most everything you could want from a  condensed into its 55 acres. Fishing—check. International architecture—check. A swimming pool, dog parks, winter ice rinks, summer concerts—checks across the board.
