Listed as a U.S. Historic District, the Roland Park neighborhood was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted between 1890 and 1920 as the first “planned suburban community”. This is a classic of neighborhoods built at that time: large setbacks, park-like mediums, gracious homes, and expensive infrastructure. It is difficult to come up with a specific route around the area’s windy streets — but use Roland Ave. between W. Nothern Parkway and W. Cold Spring Ln. as your boundaries. The neighborhood is also about 1 mile from Johns Hopkins University and the neighborhood hotels around there.
