LEAKIN PARK 2 © 1997Baltimore, MD
Gwynns Falls Leakin Park is one of the beautiful secrets of Baltimore, Maryland. Designed by the Olmsted Brothers, sons of the famous designer of Central Park, it is 1,216 acres of beautiful wilderness in the midst of a booming city. It is the largest woodland park of any city on the eastern seaboard of the United States. Hiking through the park, I found myself forgetting that I was in a city. I felt a wonderful connection to nature and found a deep appreciation for the visionary founders of Baltimore who included a wilderness area for the people so that they would have a place to restore their spirit.
