Best Park

Gwynns Falls/Leakin Park

Stretching from near the harbor all the way out to the west side of the beltway, Gwynns Falls is huge, underused, underdeveloped, and full of actual dirt trails and real-life woods (as opposed to the shoehorned nature found in many urban parks). And it's right here in the city. It boggles the mind how many people have no idea what's down there. A ginormous part of a city's livability is the availability of places like this#8212;where you can feel like you're not in a city#8212;and Gwynns is one of the best urban escapes on the East Coast, though the city has all but completely slashed its funding.
