  • More About This Book
Shady hills, rolling lawns, and gardens in the core of the city: Druid Hill Park lies at the heart of Baltimore, and made history as one of the first public parks in America. One of Frederick Law Olmsted's commissions, it led the way for other estates and green spaces to be deeded as parks that are open to all. Druid Hill's design reflects the tradition of European garden style and it stands as a natural refuge for fun and relaxation amid the urban neighborhoods of Baltimore.
