Full of resplendent parks and gardens, Baltimore has a long history of embracing local flora and greenery. Through the centuries, Baltimore has been at the forefront of park design, playgrounds, and green spaces, counting the Olmsted brothers among their visionary architects. In fact, the city of Baltimore has been internationally recognized for its development and protection of its green spaces. Baltimore's Historic Parks and Gardens explores the history of those spaces, including the vast and ancient Druid Hill Park, the gorgeous acreage of Cylburn Arboretum, and Mt. Vernon's beautiful floral presentation.
