Lake Roland

My friend and I walk along Lake Roland off Falls Road, around four times per year. It’s always a wonderful experience. We are dog lovers, and our encounters with well-behaved pooches are special. Lake Roland Nature Council has an active schedule of activities for the community. Once upon a time, the city had the rights to the park grounds, which they ceded to Baltimore County. Since then, the new ownership has spruced up activities and facilities.

Within the park environs are: trails for walking on paved paths or wooded paths (click on this link), a dog park, a children’s play ground with a solitary bee hotel, a light rail station, plenty of parking, and benches for resting. We walked the lake on a beautiful 60 degree day. We noticed a wonderful story with beautiful watercolors about an owl in winter that children, teachers, and parents could follow along a path.

We recommend a Lake Roland visit for anyone near this wonderful park.
