Join Baltimore Heritage director Johns Hopkins to learn about Baltimore historic parks and how they have shaped our city. William Patterson donated five acres of land in 1827 for Baltimore’s first public park and from there the city has created a first-class network of parks that cover thousands of acres. Family estates that at one time ringed Baltimore City, including the Hopkins, Carroll, Wyman, Rogers, Winans and other estates, were converted into promenades, nature walks, ballfields, and swimming pools.
